The contemporary architecture is often based on our usual methods of energy-focused sustainable buildings. These seem to strive toward excessive insulation and mechanical ventilation to create a sustainable building. It is driven by adding technical measures later in the project rather than creating sustainable architecture. In this report I...

This research emerged from the need to improve the Netherlands’ contribution to international water and sanitation service delivery. Over the previous two decades these serviced were not found to be sufficient sustainable according to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2013). This thesis researches how development aid organisations can...

Current urban systems have a linear metabolism; they rely on imported resources, which are used inefficiently, and they produce waste flows. Urban areas can become productive and not only consumptive if a well-planned distributed energy system is implemented. Switching to renewables, however, means rethinking today’s urban landscape entirely....

The current interpretation of sustainability is rather ego centric. We tend to view sustainability as a tool to merely satisfy our own needs for esteem while the bigger picture is often placed in the background. This unconscious and unintended (mis)usage of sustainability is completely wrong and should be changed. Sustainability should become...

The built environment has an important role to play in sustainable development. The Dutch government estimates that the build environment is responsible for 50% of resources used, 40% energy use, 30% of water use, 35% of CO2 production and 40% of the total waste production in the Netherlands. Because of these relatively high numbers, changes in...

A design strategy for an temporary Olympic arena optimized for a post-event use in steel construction has been researched. Three strategies have been considered, namely relocation, adaptation en up-cycling. A research by design was conducted with a parametric model, where two optimized designs have been compared. Applying several reuse...

High-rise buildings are a potential solution to the environmental impact caused by the built environment and the increasing demand for space in urban areas. As recent developments focus on reducing the impact by operational energy (OE) (heating, cooling, hot water and ventilation during use phase), impact by the embodied energy (EE) (production,...

Governments and private and non-profit organisations from international to local levels have acknowledged the idea that more sustainable systems are required to reduce our ecological footprint (WWF, 2016, Jonkhoff, 2012). The food system is a very important aspect within our lives, socially as well as economically but it is also one of the most...

The circular economy is a muchdiscussed topic. In recent years it became clear that scarcity of resources, pollution and landfill will make circularity inevitable in the near future.To achieve this major changes should be made in the built environment and the building sector, as the built environment is currently mostly organized in a linear way...

Höfte, Vincent (author)
The global energy demand is increasing as a result of population growth and increased wealth standards. The share of local renewable energy supply is also increasing, driven by the urge to mitigate climate problems.

Residential energy demand and renewable energy supply are both intermittent; the demand profile depends on several aspects...

This research has two major purposes: (1) to design a roadmap for the energy transition towards energy neutrality of the built environment for the city Delft, with technical interventions, based on local potentials, integrated at all scales of the city and (2) to develop a general approach that can be applied to other Dutch municipalities. The...

Packaging made from renewable sources has become more important in our society every day. Bio-based packaging is a sustainable alternative to petrochemical plastic packaging since it reduces the dependency on fossil fuel resources and lowers CO2 emissions. Tetra Pak has recently introduced the bio-based package in the market. Tetra Pak’s bio...

This was a project based seminar to explore the aesthetic potentials of sustainability in architecture. Sustainability is a very broad notion and can vary depending on the context and local environmental condition. Aesthetics is quite subjective and usually a personal matter. The seminar was an exercise to explore and research how to integrate...
