For my graduation project, I aimed to explore the way in which the new economy of reusing existing building materials or complete structures can be used in a large building project such as the new town hall in Brussels and how it can serve as an exemplar to its surroundings.

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...

The post-industrial city has become a fragmented landscape of urbanisation. The rational city of the modernist era has been eroded by the forces of globalisation and the liberalised economy, erasing the traditional points of reference in the urban environment. Consequently, this space has become increasingly illegible. Koolhaas notes: ‘We were...

Too many families are leaving the city because of the lack of affordable and suitable dwellings for them to grow and stay in the city center. Fragmentation on the dwelling market leads to the phenomenon that urban families are leaving the city center of Amsterdam because the rents are increasing. This is happening in such a way that the gap...

The intended research and design exploration for resilient heritage landscapes of the future, looks at the heritage estate not just as a composition of a historic building and its garden ensemble but as a centrally organized economic system and a spatial assemblage of living, leisure and production.

In recent time, there has been a rise in the number of coworking and activity-based working spaces. This increase has brought a high return to the real-estate developers but at the same time has compromised with occupant satisfaction. It brings an additional challenge for the architects and designer to look into the user-centred design for...

The evolution of high-rises puts more challenge for achieving indoor visual comfort because the source of getting natural light inside is solely through sidewalls; especially in deep floorplan like office buildings, where visual discomfort is very usual to be experienced. Without any measure taken, it leads to a situation where the illuminance...

Due to both geographical and functional separation of port and city, urban planning of port cities has become a rather slow, costly and sometimes conflictual process. To work towards a more collaborative way of planning and to enhance the competitive edge of port cities, mixed-use developments that include both city -and industrial orientated...

Smells are everywhere around us. They are within ourselves and around us, they impact us in our mother’s womb and throughout our entire lives, until death. But while sight and touch prevail in the contemporary approach of design and architecture, the olfactive dimension of our built environment is often forgotten.<br/>This thesis aims at...

In Skopje, the approach is to write and re-write the city. Within its architecture, a battle between oppositions is expressed. Neo-classical v Brutalism. Socialism v Nationalism. Macedonian v Albanian. The list goes on. Yet life continues amongst this and these binary oppositions do not represent the true life of Skopjans. The city’s image is...

Uncertainty posed by Climate Change brings control approaches to environmental processes and dynamics into question. In the Netherlands and particularly in the Dutch River area (Rivierenland in Dutch) narratives have already shifted towards an adaptive planning (Davoudi, 2013). However, there is still a need to go beyond the physical cultural...
