Quo Vadis is a multi-sensory interactive experience made for the residents of the Nieuw Rijsenburgh retirement home, many of whom suffer from dementia. Many of the residents spent their lives living and working on or near the water. On Quo Vadis they get to experience the feeling of being on the sea again, steering the ship and listening to old sailors’ songs on the radio. Familiar sensory experiences, like listening to songs from their youth, has been shown to greatly increase quality of life for many patients, making them more active and engaged.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
