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