Installation on De Singel square criticizes subjective way of looking at greenery

“Greenery doesn’t need to be privately owned to enjoy it”

The young Belgian-Chinese architecture office Generiek kicks-off the first edition of Table Setting. This brand new exhibition series enables young architects to share their ideas on public space. The square in front of De Singel is their playground, a series of tables are the framework of a constantly changing play. In Table Setting #1 Generiek explores the relationship between greenery and domesticity. The result is a green installation, in collaboration with textile designer Sofie Van Aelbroeck.

"In the end gardens are not natural. With this installation we want to make explicit the subjective way people look at greenery today"
‐ Richard Leung, architect (Generiek)
"As architects we strive to design and use greenery in a more collective manner. We hope that the people who visit the exhibition will appropriate the green space we’ve created on the square of De Singel"
‐ Lando De Keyzer, architect (Generiek)
"Our generic approach of architecture is the idea of working with an organizing framework, rather than treating architecture as an object"
‐ Richard Leung, architect (Generiek)
