In-memory computing is a promising computing paradigm due to its capability to alleviate the memory bottleneck. It has even higher potential when implemented usingmemristive devices ormemristors with various beneficial characteristics such as nonvolatility, high scalability, near-zero standby power consumption, high density, and CMOS...

The European Commission pointed out in 2015, with “An EU action plan for the Circular Economy”, the importance of energy and resource preservation, by respecting Earth’s resilience and renewability (European Commission, 2015). A transition towards Circular Economy is necessary in this sense to create new sustainable advantages, protecting...

The computational optimisation process have been used in the structural design for long time now. Even though it occasionally appears in architectural practice, it has not yet been completely developed and its full potential has not yet been recognised.<br/><br/>In order to further explore the potential of computational optimisation in...

The family is the most intimate social environment given to us, and this basic social element plays an important role as we get older. However, changes in family structure and increasing physical distance between family members due to globalization make it difficult to care for the elderly by the family. In the global age, distance from the most...

Log data, produced from every computer system and program, are widely used as source of valuable information to monitor and understand their behavior and their health. However, as large-scale systems generate a massive amount of log data every minute, it is impossible to detect the cause of system failure by examining manually this huge size of...

An investigation into how our world is shaped by narratives and storytelling, the design results in the re-imagining of a mining community. Having no story for their future, the design is an exploration of potential and how the community can be nudged into creating the stories they need to think positively about the future.

A new approach is needed for redeveloping peri-urban railway stations in the Netherlands, like Amsterdam Lelylaan,to solve a set of pressing issues in their specific context: the monocentric character of many of our cities, the poor quality of public space around peripheral railway stations, and the disconnection between the local and the city...

Aquilina, Emily (author)
Through the synthesis of a speculative design project I explore the meditative process of working together with earth forces to create alternative ways of valuing the Arctic and its critic yet fragile environments. Emerging as a response to the changing global trends of climate change, territorial claims and rapid melting of ice in the Arctic...

This thesis is about improving the workflow for applying the Performative Computational Architecture (PCA) framework to sun shading design. The PCA framework is a design approach consisting of three phases; form-finding, performance evaluation and optimisation. The conventional workflow in regard to sun shading design is defined as a combination...

This project is the result of the research for the graduation project of Project HUMAM; Hub for Urban Mobility for the Amsterdam Metropolitan area. The project focuses on the future demands of the Amsterdam Municipality in which they expect an increase of 70.000 new households and 50.000 new working areas over the coming 30 - 40 years in...

This project aims to explore ways of being considerate—as architects—with regards to the sites (and the bodies related to these sites) in which we intervene through our practice. Architecture is often meant as a mediator between bodies and their surroundings, however, actually realising this aspiration is rather difficult. In the research it is...

Vacancy is and remains a serious problem in today's office landscape. Many spaces and buildings are unable to adapt to the modern knowledge economy is shifting towards. This project attempts to provide a solution for disconnected, vacant offices spaces, particularly through the integration of parametric architecture. The redevelopment of the...

The project takes the increasingly polluted and flood prone coast line of the Scheldt estuary as the basis for a new coastal condition, centred on the re-composition of the sediment of the river. As a third option between dike raising and depoldering the coastline of Zeeland, a design for a new line of defence is<br/>developed which controls the...

Due to technological innovations free-form shapes in architecture can be seen more often nowadays. For instance in façades, roofs and pavilions. In between this design shape and actual producible shape lays a complex process that has to do with approximating and subdividing this shape in economically producible panels. Restrictions for...

In recent years the redevelopment of railway station areas has had an important role in urban planning and governmental politics. As most of the central stations have been improved focus of municipalities and the Dutch national government have shifted to the smaller, peri-urban stations. When researching these peri-urban stations it became clear...

Elderly in the Netherlands today are not all assured of a suitable home for the rest of their lives. Because sooner or later the safe place that you call home isn’t that safe anymore and does not meet the requirements that come with living on an old age. The main causes of this are mobility issues, diseases or the passing away of people close to...
