‘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: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
