Between 2004 and 2007, NEXT formed a research team with Professor Rudy Uytenhaak and Jeroen Mensink BSc at Delft University of Technology. The theme of the three-year study was ‘Dichtheid en Ruimtelijke Kwaliteit’ (Density and Spatial Quality) and it focused on the theoretical capacities of urban tissues in order to formulate a quantitative description of density.
The objective of the study was to acquire more knowledge about the various aspects of spatial density. The outcome of the study resulted in a publication of the same name, to go on sale in bookshops by the end of 2007.
As part of the three-year long study on Density and Spatial Quality, a very compact exhibition was put together that travelled to various locations in the Netherlands.
Research results and students’ work were compared with work from Rudy Uytenhaak’s practice. The four sides of the exhibition were used by each to communicate their own message.
