“Coming from my smaller residence with only two housemates, I was looking for a melting pot of all student life of Delft. I moved to the JVB in the summer of 2012. While I discontinued my study in Delft, and through some steps ended up at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, it never crossed my mind to move out of the JVB. The balancing act between the artistic in The Hague and the technical in Delft proved to be a working mix for me. Getting more into architecture, the JVB really stole my heart as both a physical manifestation of a student castle and a case study of collaborative living.”
Hanna Rudner is a current resident, graduating from Architecture at TU Delft. She is behind the initiative to organise the exhibition about co-living at the JVB. Her work focuses on searching for modes of architectural practice which challenge the notion of singular authorship, so present in architectural historicism, magazines, cultural institutions, competitions, prizes and mainstream media. Instead, she is interested in collaborative practices founded on the belief that the built environment is the result of many (often unforeseen) human actions that must sustain a wide range of (often unforeseen) activities.
