‘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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
