Hoe ontwikkelde het vakantiepark zich en waarom zo? Deze vraag staat centraal in dit proefschrift naar de ruimtelijke ontwikkeling van één van Nederlands bekendste vakantie-accommodaties. Hypothese daarbij was dat die ontwikkeling niet los te zien is van de woonomgeving, omdat het vakantiepark zich steeds in reactie daarop tot een alternatief...

Through almost half-century, the politics of social housing championed by the totalitarian regime that ruled Portugal from 1928 until 1974 was designed to mitigate conflicts. With the revolutionary coup of April 25th 1974, this state of affairs would change swiftly but not lastingly. In the two eventful years of Portugal’s transition to a...

The identification of clusters or communities in complex networks is a reappearing problem. The minimum spanning tree (MST), the tree connecting all nodes with minimum total weight, is regarded as an important transport backbone of the original weighted graph.

Ondanks dat ik mijn ontwerpwerkzaamheden zojuist opgeschort had om mij volledig op het onderwijs en de theorie van architectuur te richten, ben ik meteen ingegaan op deze vraag. Nadenken over een kerkgebouw, dat...
