Maurice Specht

Maurice Specht is a Rotterdam-based researcher and organizer. He has a background in philosophy and a PhD in Political Science from the Free University in Amsterdam. The main focus of his work is to understand, both conceptually and practically, how to organize public places for "good." Leeszaal is the most developed expression of this interest. In the last three years he began another project on an island in the Maas River, in Rotterdam, where he and a team of volunteers took apart an abandoned building and used the materials to build a 350 square meter public make-, think-, and work-space for all ages.
