Jeroen van der Eijnde (ed.), Designing for Precarious Citizens
Architect Johan Niegeman was one of the few Dutch teachers at the famous Bauhaus art school. He and Mart Stam designed and built several social housing projects in the Soviet Union. Niegeman’s aim was to improve the quality of housing for the masses, those living in poor conditions. Designing for Precarious Citizens showcases several projects in which designers and product-design students at ArtEZ University of the Arts applied Niegeman’s ideas to today’s society. Who are today’s precarious citizens and how can design be of service to them?
