Pop-Up City bookmark

Time for an update! When we posted our last update the Pop-Up City book campaign had just reached the 25% mark, and look where we are now!

    Joop and Jeroen

    We’re pretty overwhelmed here by the amazing support we’ve received in the first days of the Pop-Up City book crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter. We’re very happy and grateful to see that so many people want us to publish the book!

  • This Happens When You Put Creative Minds Into A Pressure Cooker

    With his Shapeshifter project, Menno van den Berg explores ways to let furniture and objects change their form and shape according to the needs of the user.

The newest generation of Dutch new media graduates were asked to crack several societal issues in a series of workshops. What kind of ideas did they come up with?
