Transition-Scapes

Exploring New Ways to Show What the Future of Energy Looks Like

2023 - 2025

Transition-Scapes is a project about creating interactive exhibition forms that help everyone understand what the future might hold for our energy use. Through collaborative workshops, the involved design and research teams (design professionals, exhibition makers, experts in the field of energy transition, researchers, and students), will investigate how to make it easier for residents to talk about the implications of the energy transition.

The project is looking for creative ways to get everyone involved and interested in the topic of energy transition. It plans to do this by setting up Transition-Scapes, a special tool to show the different possibilities for the future of energy in a way that's easy to see and understand. In the coming two years, design teams will develop a framework for the design and use of Transition-Scapes. The IABR is involved in one of two case studies, namely of the J.J.P. Oud residential block in Bospolder-Tussendijken, in which the technical challenges of the energy transition meet the socioeconomic and ecological challenges.
