O ce for Phantasmatic Displace
Design is some sort of a technique to organize things
and processes in an e cient and smoothway. In order
to create just a beautiful surface it often ignores cru-
cial questions on social and environmental impacts.
With our approach we directly focus on these ques-
tions using what we call phantasmatic displacements
as a tool, which opens up discontinuities, controver-
sies and spaces of reflexion in public sphere. In order
to architecture and questions of urban planning it
means to create a site-specific fictionwhich reacts sub-
versive on the surrounding context.
For ourworkshopwe use phantasmatic displacements
in the form of construction sign building-blackboards,
which have to be designed by the students. The aim is
to generate a phantasma which transforms common
patterns of perception, creates areas of involvement
and penetrates social conditions. Installing these con-
struction sign building-blackboards on selected places
in the city the students have to promote their architec-
tural vision to the passerby. By performative interac-
tions they generate together with the passerby a shift-
ed perspective on the symbolic order of the city. So
these sitespecific fictions have the potential to induce
unexpected shifts in everyday life.

To understand the fundamental element of (a) space,
we reduce it to its (arbitrary) elementary, essential
characteristics and then
it from its original
context. In the reduction and
we grasp,
know and feel a space.
Three steps
1. The displacement starts through the isolation and
mimesis of an interior space. A new space is created
whenwe get to the essential qualities of a space and
recreate it with minimised means and elements. How
to decide andwhy?What´s awindowwhenwhat´s
behind it, is unknown, is it essential? Do you replace
it? And howdoes this affect the space?
2. The space is loose from its context andwill be (dis)
placed in a new ´social´ spatial context in the public
domain. What techniques do you use in defining it´s
new location: Drawing, 1:1 test trial and error? Can
you deduce directions from the spatial intrinsic values
of the space?
3. In a new context the space will be adapted to a point
that is regathers the same spatial qualities as it had
before step one.
To describe, evaluate and valuate these steps we will
use the terminology as developed by architect Hans
van der Laan: Spatial cell, court and domain.
Central and permanent to our spatial experiences is
our body; the one constant factor in all our encounters
in changing contexts. Therefore, the workshops start
with an exercise in displacement of the body using ba-
sic Aikido techniques.

Eric de Leeuw
studied Interior
Architecture and Architecture at the
University of Architecture,
Amsterdam where he graduated
cum laude in 1996.
He worked at Mecanoo Architects
and in 1997 he founded DAAD. In
2005 he founded DLVZ/ studio
together with Ingrid van Zanten.
DLVZ/ is an interdisciplinary studio
that has realised project s in
almost every domain of spatial
design. DLVZ/ invests many effort in
research in order to enlarge the
knowledge of the discipline.
In 2001 Eric de Leeuw started
tutoring at many different schools
i.e. the Universities of Architecture
in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Arnhem
and Groningen. And at the
University of the Arts, Int.
architecture, in Zwolle. Currently he
holds a position as head and tutor at
ArtEZ University of the Arts,
