As a first key step in its journey to meanwhile uses and eco-practices, the local team (Waag) invited artist and earth scientist Esmee Geerken to guide a collective exploration and sensing of the green corridors at Amsterdam Science Park, and also run hybrid events bringing together thinkers, scientists, and designers from the field of biology, material development and sociology to discuss ‘building’ on the scale of the city, the mind and matter. Through the talks and physical exploration of the green corridors of the Amsterdam Science park, experts and participants collectively explored new urban design strategies.

This first event also helped introduce the T-Factor project to the local context and create an initial dialogue and exchange with local experts and people interested in eco-practices through meanwhile uses.
