Redesignation of the De Ploeg factory

Master students (MSc1 RMIT, Master’s track in Architecture) have developed potential redesignation scenarios for the ‘De Ploeg’ factory in Bergeijk that was designed by Gerrit Rietveld. Their various future visions of the factory have been brought together in an exhibition entitled ‘Interventie De Ploeg Bergeijck’. This exhibition is sponsored by TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture, Stichting Rietveld & Ruys and Wooninc.

Rietveld expertise

In developing their redesignation scenarios, the students received support from teaching staff and researchers in the RMIT department of TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture. Three members of the department have conducted a great deal of research on the work of Gerrit Rietveld. Dr Marie-Thérèse van Thoor, Dr Hielkje Zijlstra and Professor Marieke Kuipers are well acquainted with Rietveld’s architectural work, having also contributed to the publication ‘Rietvelds Universum’ in 2010.

RMIT teaching: redesignation

In the first semester of the Master’s track in Architecture in the Master’s programme ‘Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences’, the RMIT department offers a design exercise focusing on the redesignation of buildings. Each year, students must devise a new function for an unoccupied building; in many cases this will be a factory.
