KAZERNE LAB: Funding and construction models for heritage

Geert Bogaard, Harrie van Helmond & Sanne de Koning

Kazerne Lab

Within Kazerne Lab, professional creatives work cross-over with other (economic) sectors to develop products, insights, and incentives for topical issues. With their fresh perspective and outlook, they provide current social, cultural and economic issues with inspiration, new perspectives, and answers. That may sound rather pompous, but it is, in fact, an extremely practical process.

The Lab is not a physical workplace but a project that is worked on within the heads and studios of the participating designers.

Social Design Lab

The social design Lab explores the open question of how designers can contribute to a more liveable world of tomorrow.

Inventory Lab

In the inventory Lab, designers work with regional manufacturing industries on creating innovative inventory for hospitality ends.

Maintaining heritage

How can heritage be maintained in a new economic reality? What are the legal consequences of innovative funding like tribe funding? Architect Harrie van Helmond, heritage specialist Sanne de Koning and cultural concept developer Geert Bogaard researched whether the approach taken by Kazerne can be turned into a general manual for the repurpose of heritage.
