‘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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
