Dealing with urban transformation happens at the intersection of different decisions, practices and stakeholders. In these complex conditions, we set up design processes as learning environments, where design can become an instrument for productive uncertainty. We call this approach Design in Dialogue.

As a group, the people at 51N4E practise this daily. It is a collective effort to see design as a process that connects knowledge, combining personal engagement with radical openness to others.

  • Ruben Janssens,

    Since joining 51N4E in 2015, I’ve had the chance to grow and learn in an environment that is constantly changing and reinventing itself to structure its complexity and messiness. In the last few years, I was able to combine long-term and large-scale projects with fast and hands-on interventions. As a person I tend to be oriented towards practical solutions and to use a fast, personal approach. The pool of knowledge and competences within 51N4E allows me to go beyond pure practicality and has made my ideas and work methods more critical. I am currently supervising multiple projects for Cast and am helping to set up the new Root studio.
