  • Permanent Workshop #1

    Building as Becommoning: Imagining Permanent Through Lived Experience

    28.01.2021

    @ online (via zoom)

    contact@permanentbrussel.org

    permanentbrussels.org

    Users of Level Five, Globe Aroma, CLTB, VUB (the current partners in the Permanent coalition) will be asked to give an insight in their spatial experiences by sharing their daily activities. Through a collection of images and questions that illustrate very concrete to more abstract attitudes, we try to bring about a conversation that opens up the imagination of what Permanent can be. In this conversation we take into account a set of yet unknown users and uses, "the neighbourhood," wherever Permanent will finds a place this will always be an equal partner. This conversation will introduce and challenge the following workshops: Holding up the Mirror, More Than Just a Collection of Bricks and People, The Many Ones, Brick by Brick. We see these workshops as the starting point to develop a set of tools and practices enabling groups that roam temporary and precarious space to build, through solidarity, more autonomous structures from the ground up.

    Building as Becommoning: Holding up the Mirror

    19.02.2021

    @ tba

    permanentbrussels.org

    In this workshop we will study the current partners of Permanent (Level Five, Globe Aroma, CLTB, VUB) in detail from an organizational point of view. Next to collecting data on their current activities, we reflect on their spatial use and evaluate on the way each organization works. By holding up the mirror we want to research alternative organisational schemes and potential spatial configurations. At the same time the different partners will learn about each others identities and ambitions. In preparation to this workshop, we will visit each current partners' venue and to collect a wide range of parameters through different mapping tools which illustrate their current and potential dynamics. Dialogues with users, imagery, storytelling, … play an important role to give a more complex understanding of the organizations and spaces. This workshop will serve as a first step to envision the potential of sharing within and around a possible location. Both topics will be further researched in workshops 3 and 4.

  • Permanent Workshop #4

    Building as Becommoning: The Many Ones

    23.04.2021

    @ tba

    permanentbrussels.org

    In this workshop we will zoom in on the building and uses in and along the building. The focus lies on the overlap between the different needs resulting in a spatial complexity with a good sense of sharing. How can we envision shared collective spaces, while preserving safe space and specific needs of specific users and partners? Where do we draw the line of what can be shared and what does that imply in terms of collective and public spaces ? The workshop focusses on the interest and advantages that can be mutualised between the different partners and their activities, while raising awareness on potential sensitive consequences by reflecting on how a place can tolerate friction or disagreement. The notion of sharing also questions to what extent a building can become public. What needs to remain a safe space, what space is there for overlap. The personal history and the intimacy we have with some public buildings, is sometimes the only connection to wander through the space.

  • Permanent Workshop #5

    Building as Becommoning: Brick by Brick

    21.05.2021

    permanentbrussels.org

    This workshop focuses on the construction site. How creative interventions in the building process could extent the paradigm of cheap and fast and turned it into solidary and durable. How could we imagine a building at the same time as a construction site while already making use of the building? We will look for methodologies that engage contractors in a project while leaving room for an appropriation integrated development by the users themselves, methodologies that re-invent the time line of a building from foundations to final use, cross fertilizing construction, use and appropriation over the course of time. Both considerations will be addressed within the framework of a defined construction language which deals with intelligent structure, materiality, sustainability and degrees of finishing. As a preparation different attitudes will be explored by investigating prominent examples, expertise and shared experiences in search of a becommoning.
