The public school for architecture brussels needs a school trip. Black holes, back rooms. Invisible monsters and aggressively inspiring architectural artefacts. Air pockets and sign systems. Panoramic in oblivion.
In our time, and especially in our city, parking garages are both hated and loved, booming and going extinct. Speed trip: Brussels Parking Garage Dérive proposes a carpool daytrip around town. We’ll stitch together a route via both Brussels’ well-known and its more exotic parking garages. Participants will share cars and document the disconnected nodes along the way.
Usually, an entry ticket to a garage grants you a fifteen minute timeframe in which you can drive off again - not having found a decent spot to park. These free moments - and the drive soundtrack - will decide the pace of the trip.
The Brussels Parking Garage Dérive is organized by Pieterjan Ginckels and is a collaboration between the public school for architecture brussels and Z33's show Future Fictions: perspectives on world building.
