“The Room” is a representation and a proposal for the life and work conditions of nomadic precarious workers today. This project brings up this issue of the uncertainty of their work/life because it goes frequently unnoticed, and is considered quite normal.
Today the nomadic knowledge workers and young practitioners experience blurring of borders between places where they live and work. The author here also being in this position himself, tackled the design questions of this situation by doing one-to-one scale experiments in order to present firsthand takes on the issue.
With this strategy, the project aimed to provoke radical thinking for affordable living/working spaces for young practitioners through inhabiting unused spaces of existing buildings.
Here is The Room in Het Hoofdkantoor, Haarlem, November 2017.
