AR Lab nominated for a RAAK-Pro Award

For the second year in a row, one of the AR Lab’s projects – Smart Replicas this time – was nominated for a RAAK-Pro Award! This ceremony was held on 21 November 2013 and is part of Stichting Innovatie Alliantie (SIA) annual conference. Each year, prizes are awarded to those projects that take knowledge circulation, knowledge advancement, projects’ results and sustainable innovation to heart.

AR Lab nominated for RAAK-Pro award 2013

We are very proud to announce that we are nominated for a RAAK-Pro award 2013 for our highly collaborative (Studio Maaike Roozenburg, TU-Delft, KABK students from the Graphic Design department, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen) Smart Replicas project! With this project, our aim is to reuse historical objects by 3D-printing them and enriching them with innovative techniques such as AR. KABK Students, all the while, learn how to adopt new techniques to further their artistic design research.

Smart Replicas project: Design Column #4 The Circle Is Round

Design Column #4 The Circle Is Round features four stories that provide a counterweight to the current tendency towards withdrawal and defence. In different ways the projects show that thinking in terms of boundaries and linear developments is by no means always relevant. When doors appear to close, opportunities arise elsewhere. The ‘plastic soup’ in the ocean is not bound by national borders. Newer and bigger is not always better. Growth is cyclical; the circle is round.

Smart Replicas research project

Smart Replicas is a research project of Studio Maaike Roozenburg, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, AR Lab en TU-Delft; a project at the intersection of design, cultural heritage and science. Students of the KABK's Graphic Design department, under guidance of Gert Dumbar and the AR Lab, will contribute on this project. Students of Industrial Design Engineering department of Delft University of Technology will work on this project as well.
