Gallery Night : Providence- Tangram Architecture and Urban Landscape

Thu November 20, 2014 at 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

LOCATION: AIAri Window on Architecture, 158 Washington Street, Providence, RI 02903

{{tangram-croppe{{Winning Europan 1 (1988-1989) – a bi-annual European design competition for young architects – with a daring design for flexible living in The Hague, was the starting point of TANGRAM. At the office now work around 15 members of staff, led by Charlotte ten Dijke and Bart Mispelblom Beyer.

TANGRAM consistently explores the possibilities and consequences of compaction, both in theory and in practice. Sustainable building in high densities, the only way to keep up with the constant need for quality space in the Netherlands, while preserving the valuable green landscape. Building in a higher intensity makes it possible to preserve the, what is left, open space in the country and around the cities, which is necessary to continue to function properly. In this way the contrasts, the built and open spaces, their qualities, are retained, so necessary for a pleasant living environment.
