Tom Van Malderen (b.1973, Belgium) is Malta-based architect who probes the intersections of art, design and architecture in his work. He contemplates the diverse ways we use our environments, takes a close look at the intricate web of cultural references embedded in their objects and materials, and prompts reflection on questions of utility, value, ambiguity and accessibility. Van Malderen invites visitors and users to imagine and experience the fictions and frictions of our inhabited space, its politics, its history, its materiality and other real and unreal constructs.
