Real Projects for Real People Volume 1

Real Projects for Real People Volume 1 is a reflection on the work of The Patching Zone.

Real Projects for Real People Volume 1 is a reflection on the work of The Patching Zone, a transdisciplinary media laboratory based in Rotterdam where students, young professionals and experts from different backgrounds build a shared practice. 

In Real Projects for Real People Volume 1 the authors take us on a rich journey of practice lead research and development that is grouped around four projects that were developed in The Patching Zone’s first two years (2008-2010). It highlights the theory and research approach that were applied; the outcomes are illustrated by the team members’ contributions through photo-essays, papers, design sketches and interviews with the stakeholders. Real Projects for Real People Volume 1 is especially relevant for researchers, scholars, makers and educators who are interested in a collaborative practice in the field of creative industry and technology.
