Droste, Sarah (author)
One of the major technological challenges in achieving circularity within the built environment is the disassembly of multi-material systems at the end of their useful life. This is especially true for façade systems, which have become more complex to improve operational performance. As efforts to reduce embodied carbon in façade systems...

Currently people with physical disabilities do not have the option to be away from home for a short or longer period of time to relieve themselves from the medical situation at home. This creates a feeling that there is currently a building typology missing in society and forms a challenge to be further investigated. The objective is to gather...

With 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions originating from the built environment, the construction sector has a big responsibility to reduce global warming. The impact that structural designs have, is often calculated by simply multiplying a carbon factor with the mass of the structure. As gridshell structures feature a high number of nodes,...

Current research conducted at TU Delft focused on utilizing structural Topology Optimization (TO) for designing large monolithic cast glass structures with maximum stiffness and minimum mass. These structures demonstrated improved manufacturability in terms of time, energy, and cost efficiency due to their mass efficiency, which results in...

The 15-minute city is an urban planning concept which seeks to enhance social sustainability by improving accessibility. In this master thesis accessibility in Amsterdam Nieuw-West is explored to better understand the link between the 15-minute city concept and social sustainability to answer the research question: To what extent is the 15...

This report investigates the potential use of Phase Change Material (PCM) technology in poorly insulated lightweight homes in the Netherlands. The aim is to develop a cost-effective and easy-to-install PCM product that can decrease energy consumption through passive heating and cooling. The proposed design involves a multi-layer curtain system...

In a constantly evolving urban environment, it is important that we design structures with future adaptability in mind. Bridges for example can have very long life spans, but within their life span their use might change or even become obsolete. Disposing of the bridge, which can still be in perfectly good shape, would be a terrible waste of...

Dense urbanization increases the demand on the building sector who is responsible, on the one hand for producing large amounts of landfilled glass waste, and on the other for consuming the earth’s natural resources and release additional CO2 emissions, for the manufacture of new architectural glass. These unfavorable conditions together with the...

To reduce the heat loss in heritage buildings, this graduation research aims to explore what alternative solutions arise when thin glass is used to design an insulating glass panel that replaces the single glazing? To do so, six different designs are proposed. The first two are an IGU with thin glass and laminated thin glass. The third design is...

Glass has been widely used in the construction industry since the early nineteenth century. It was most commonly used in the form of a window, which is a flat glass panel. Glass has natural optical properties and is resistant to weather, making it ideal for use as a facade material. Glass’s novel applications in the built environment have led us...

As the housing shortage in the Netherlands is rapidly increasing, hence the need to develop more housing is as well. It is needed to make these new houses more sustainable to honour the Paris climate agreement. It is known how to make buildings energy neutral. To push further the development of a sustainable urban environment research is done by...

The goal of this project is to design a high-quality circular housing complex. The challenge lies in finding a balance between creating a circular and high-quality result and making it as cost-effective as possible. Circularity in this design will focus on using prefabricated timber modules that are designed for disassembly. It also entails the...

In the Netherlands, the residential buildings consume the highest percentage of primary energy among the various building sectors. With around 80% of the Dutch housing built before 1995 a huge portion of the energy share is tapped in the old housing stock. While new housing constructions had to be nearly energy neutral as of 2020, a large...

The project proposes a futureproof neighborhood of an open building system in order to deal with the housing shortage, a circular economy and changing needs in society. The dense neighborhood in Amsterdam Sloterdijk makes a connection to the Brettenzone and is completely built from a smart support system and demountable infill systems and...

The project deals with a real time issue of housing shortage, the urgency of which requires feasible solutions. It looks to the cities with different eyes and encourages seeing the otherwise overlooked opportunities. The proposed design of single occupant housing responds to this typology’s increasing demand. It also takes advantage of its small...

Glass is a material which can be seen as a double-edged sword. Its monolithic, smooth, and transparent look transmits a sense of elegance and simplicity. However, due to its brittle mechanical property, it can create complex engineering challenges when intended for a structural load-bearing application. Many forget glass has a comparable...

Over the last decades Amsterdam has grown exponentially north of the IJ, and this trend is expected to continue. The number of commuters across the river is expected to increase, but there is currently no fixed connection for cyclists or pedestrians, which use ponds. The municipality has proposed a bridge across the IJ between the Hamerkwartier...

van den Berg, Stijn (author)
This research focuses on the unofficial neighbourhoods on the boarders of South African Cities. The informal settlements are quickly built by unskilled hands on foreign land without any form of planning, supervision or legislation. The self-constructed houses lack of daylight, ventilation and water tightness. This results in poor, unsafe and...
