‘Building for Architecture’ ideas competition for new TU Delft faculty building

05.09.2008
The Faculty of Architecture of the TU Delft (The Netherlands) is challenging students, architects and urban planners to come up with ideas for 'the educational building of the future and its place in the urban network'.

The best ideas will be included in the design of the new Architecture faculty building which is to replace the building completely destroyed by fire on 13 May 2008.

Dutch Government Minister Plasterk will officially launch the ideas competition on Saturday 13 September in the Dutch Pavilion at the Architecture Biennial in Venice at 13.00. An international jury will then choose the winners in December.

Educational building of the future

The ideas competition focuses on two main themes: the Educational Building of the Future and the relationship between the campus and the city. The concept behind the competition aims to stimulate design research and arouse creativity among the talented younger generation of designers. It also seeks to promote development of the architecture profession via critical reflection and debate.

The ideas competition launch will form part of the presentation by the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi), ArchiPhoenix. This exhibition will be officially opened at 18.00 on Friday 12 September by Chief Government Architect Liesbeth van der Pol.

Jury
The ideas will be judged by a specialist international jury in December 2008. Total prize money amounts to EUR 30,000. The winning designs will be displayed at the Netherlands Architecture Institute, on the website www.buildingforbouwkunde.nl and in a January 2009 publication. During the presentation of the winning design, the Netherlands Architecture Institute and TU Delft will hold a joint symposium on the results of the debate in Venice.

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Next-generation gravitational wave detector in space will complement LIGO on Earth

The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
