Despite the fact that pop-up and temporary architecture is slowly evolving, there is much room
for improvement. While the focus is in the function it serves, it very commonly lacks in the aesthetic
aspect and the quality of the space, being perceived by many as cheap, fast and disposable. Similarly, in the technical aspect, it lacks the...

As a response to land scarcity, climate change, the decreasing stock of fossil fuels and the pressure on the drinking water system, this proposal proposes to extend cities onto the water within a floating, modular and self-sustaining neighbourhood. This proposal includes research into floating mechanisms, modular systems, and various systems to...

The growth of world population will be the challenge of the century regarding the carbon footprints. The human activities produce both direct and indirect carbon emission that is contributing to the climate change. The construction industry itself contributes around 30 percent of total carbon emissions in the world. Thus, the challenge is to...

Daylighting is the immediate exploitation of solar energy in the form of nat-
ural lighting and plays an integral role in minimizing the energy footprint
of a building. Smart daylighting enables us to design buildings that provide
comfort and energy savings.

This work proposes a dynamic facade system for buildings which aims...

In the packaging industry, there are certain criteria that characterize whether a package is sustainable or not. Thus, the design of the product is decided by satisfying the aforementioned criteria. However, when the whole supply chain is under study, the process is not so straightforward and the related science field is Sustainable Supply Chain...

Repair was once a common act. With increased product diversity and complexity, a scarcity and obsolescence of spare parts is making repair increasingly difficult and economically unviable. The result is an accelerated turnover of manufactured goods, which are more often replaced than repaired. As products are discarded, embedded materials and...

The present research applied a mixed approach for increasing the energy performance of retail spaces by setting new specific energy consumption targets and identifying what measures can be implemented at the building level to achieve the most energy gains. Energy benchmarking, a common practice of evaluating the building performance has been...

Urban populations in coastal contexts suffer increasingly from both environmental and spatial risks. Major flooding events, storms, fires, landslides and earthquakes coupled with the unorganized urban fabric located at the locations most at-risk to these hazards render millions of people extremely vulnerable. The externalities in terms of...

Sustainability and livability are two important dimensions of urban environments, that are however found to be in a constant imbalance. The achievement of a sustainable and livable city is hindered by the constraints of urban form, and density, in particular, has a crucial role in defining the performance of urban environments in terms of...

The two main problems of the Intervamflats are comfort and energy consumption. The portiekflats from 1964 are not well insulated, which result in spaces that can not be heated sufficiently and a high-energy consumption. To make these portiekflats comply with current comfort standards and legislation (e.g. Energieakkoord: social housing must have...
