Istanbul95 Talks: Elger Blitz

Thu, Apr 5, 2018    7pm

Elger Blitz is founder, and senior designer at Carve. He accidentally got involved into designing playgrounds in the early nineties. He has more than 15 years of experience in relevant projects in public space. His cross disciplinary and renewing approach on designing for children and youngsters has proved to anticipate to actual demands and trends. He handles design tasks in a very integral manner, switching easily between different scale levels and disciplines. His unconventional approach and distinctive ideas on designing for kids and teenagers makes him a guest lecturer at different universities in the Netherlands and abroad.

Carve is a design and engineering bureau that focuses on the planning and development of public space, particularly for use by children and young people. Our ideas are translated to playable public spaces, parks, play elements and furniture. Carve has years of experience in designing skateparks and unconventional public spaces aiming at youth. Clients are local governments, architects, landscape architects and manufacturers of playground equipment.

Since the establishment of the office in 1997 by Elger Blitz and Mark van der Eng the office has grown into a company with 12 employees. Carve is an office within which several design disciplines meet, from industrial design to civil engineering, architecture and landscape architecture.

Simultaneous translation to Turkish will be available.
