Improved productivity and a higher level of sustainability are modern day challenges faced by the building industry that are currently being and could further be solved by a higher degree of automation. Freeform architecture is still in its infancy but the demand for it is growing. Reusable building elements are a rarity in freeforms. This...

The world is in a climatic crisis. Extreme weather events are stronger and more frequent than ever before, exacerbated by human induced CO2 from energy production and the built environment. Only 5% of world energy is produced by renewable energy sources, presenting an enormous gap between sustainability and greenhouse gas emitting practices....

Martinez Palacio, Maria Daniela (author)
The rapid growth in building stock and the demand for new construction present significant challenges in terms of material scarcity, waste production, and greenhouse gas emissions. To address these challenges, a fundamental shift in the construction industry's approach is needed, viewing waste as a resource through circularity principles. This...

Architects and urban planners still rely on physical models in the design process, particularly for urban contexts. However, developing such models can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, despite the abundance of digital information available. This study investigates the feasibility of using pin-type models, specifically in the concept and...

The construction industry and the existing building stock are significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. To address this environmental challenge, there is a growing interest in using bio-based materials, such as wood, in architecture. Yet, the availability of wood resources is limited.<br/>Bamboo, a non-wood species, holds promise as...

The construction industry’s impact on carbon emissions, pollution, and resource depletion necessitates innovative approaches to reduce environmental harm. This research explores the use of computational design, digital fabrication, and timber as a renewable material to mitigate the construction industry’s environmental impact. Timber is...

The built environment contributes in a large extend to the global greenhouse gas emissions. With a growing demand for new buildings another view on building products is required. This thesis focusses on creating a biobased sound absorbing panel made from a mycelium bound biomaterial derived from urban waste. The production method for this panel...

Munoz, Francisco (author)
Waste derived from constructions and demolitions creates an opportunity to lower the carbon footprint of buildings. As bricks and concrete make up two of the most common construction materials world-wide, once the buildings they are built into, reach their end life, a large portion of the waste becomes available for reuse, rich in properties...

Continued humanitarian crises have caused the amount of forcibly displaced people to increase rapidly in recent years, creating an urgent need for constructing adequate sheltering to house the displaced. Governments and international organizations attempt to accommodate the growing demands by subsidizing and mass producing temporary transitional...

Bierach, Christopher (author)
With a building industry that is responsible for a large amount of our carbon emissions, a rising population, and the over-extraction of resources, architects and engineers have the responsibility to use environmentally friendly products. Lignin and cellulose are the most abundant biopolymers on earth and produce a lot of waste by ending up...

Brueren, Pim (author)
Due to the NECP, many homes are in need of renovation. In 2016, the Netherlands had 799,956 apartments built between 1906 and 1965. A large part consists of porch houses. The houses are poorly insulated due to hasty and savings in construction. This research focuses on walk-up apartments built after the Second World War. The aim is to define how...

Buiksloterham, situated on the northern banks of the IJ river, is undergoing massive urban redevelopment as it transits from an industrial town to a mix-use development. However the lack of connectivity within the neighbourhood has become an ever more prominent problem for its growing residents and workers. Gemeente Amsterdam has proposed the...

Bioreceptivity is a natural phenomenon that has been observed on building material for many years. Bioreceptivity is when materials are being colonized by one or more species of living organisms without necessarily going under biodeterioration. (Guillitte, 1995) Based on the literature, bioreceptivity depends on three main factors: on climatic...

The thesis focuses on developing a workflow that utilizes an interactive flexible mold as a means of designing and fabricating freeform surfaces. The focus will be on automating a flexible mold (Re-De-Form) and use it to study and fabricate freeform surfaces. Currently, the technology associated with Re-De-Form can produce complex surfaces with...

In the current times, the world context is focused on trying to incorporate hybridity into various industries. There is a certain research gap between architecture and soft robotics where inflatable architecture has been implemented and architectural robotics has also been implemented but a combination of pneumatic robotics has not been explored...

When designing for structural performance, the geometry of the load-bearing elements is crucial for achieving the required stability. This is even more important in structural forms, such as shells and arches that are predominantly designed by their structural requirements. However, the typical design process starts with the design by the...

Leemeijer, Kees (author)
The building sector is responsible for 40% of worldwide carbon emissions, of which 8% can be attributed to concrete construction. With an increased demand for housing, this percentage is bound to increase. This thesis sheds light on strategies for reducing the environmental impact of concrete construction by investigating the potential of...

Mandat, Max (author)
To cope with the climate crisis, sustainable and eco-friendly buildings are a necessity. To achieve this, we need to change the way we build, this accounts as well for construction materials. For thousands of years, humans have lived in clay and timber hybrid constructions. These hybrids are made of sustainable, possibly circular, highly...
