O’Penh Design Lab

Creating a space for communication & creation for young people in Phnom Penh.

The Lab was a series of public events me and my colleagues created during the TU Delft / Cambodia project. With workshops and talks we wanted to make local students regain their creative confidence and freedom, that they didn’t get in their current studies or work life.

We organized full house events with motivated students…

In our workshops we made students face very abstract problems and let them experiment with different tools to find solutions. The mentors from our TU Delft design team took time for each student and went through their thinking process. All solutions were presented to everyone in an open discussion.
