Guest curator Petra Blaisse offers visitors a totally new experience of Sonneveld House, Rotterdam, with one ingenious intervention. Interior designer and landscape architect Blaisse explores the limits of architecture with her office Inside Outside by enhancing or temporarily transforming the unique qualities of buildings and their outdoor spaces. Blaisse is renowned for the soft yet compelling way she separates or envelops space with monumental curtains. But, this time, in an intervention that will remain open until September 13, Petra Blaisse and members of his studio Inside Outside have removed fabrics instead of installing them. They have stripped all draperies, carpets and rugs off the Sonneveld House. They have covered the ground with large mirrors. The result is “a house that reacts with visitors” they explain.
