Marjan van Aubel

The Research Fellowship Programme: Marjan van Aubel


For her fellowship project van Aubel is working on solar infrastructure. Something that in the urban context so far has largely been implemented as “add-ons” to existing buildings (roofs, façades etc.) Marjan van Aubel’s approach is to research what is needed for a Solar Democracy and how this infrastructure would function. How can Solar Design create space?

Marjan van Aubel is an award-winning solar designer graduated from the Royal College of Art and the Rietveld Academy (DesignLAB). Van Aubel has since exhibited at institutions such as the MoMA New York, V&A, the Design Museum and Stedelijk Museum.
