During the 1·Lectures of February 9th, multidisciplinary designer Petra Blaisse (London 1955) takes the stage to share the work of her globally operating design agency Inside Outside. With her work, Blaisse brings the ‘wilderness’ to the city, thereby creating a transition zone between the urban and the rural. An example of this vision is the soon-to-be realized project ‘Water Recipe Garden’ in Qatar.
Blaisse started her career at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. From 1987 onwards she worked as a freelance designer and received critical acclaim for her architectural installations. With time, her focus shifted to the use of textiles and the influence of light in her interior designs, together with increasingly complex garden and landscape designs.
Inside Outside was founded in 1991 and has operated in a range of creative fields, such as landscape design, interior design and exhibitions. Among the more renowned projects that have been realized are the Public Library in Seattle, the Dutch Embassy in Berlin and the landscape design of the IIT-campus center in Chicago.
