As architects encounter challenges when comprehending and fulfilling the requirements of users and other stakeholders involved in the<br/>architectural design project, participatory design, which involves non-architects in the design process, is perceived as one of the solutions. It is a developing practice that can lead to greater engagement of...

Tensioned membrane structures are increasingly in demand, because of their ability to cover large spaces with minimum use of material. The material’s mechanical properties play a key role in the design of such structures. The shear behaviour is one of the main influential properties of woven textiles during complex deformations, such as the ones...

The ecological question is symptomatic of our time and a multi-disciplinary problem. The material manipulations produced by the architectural and urban design disciplines interfere with essential ecosystemic processes by introducing disruptive materialities and machinery. This work aimed to participate in shaping a solid foundation for the...

In July 2021, heavy floods hit the Dutch province Limburg after days of rainfall in south-west Germany, the Ardennes and southern Limburg. Rivers like the Geul, the Roer and the Maas couldn’t discharge the large amounts of water. Many parts of these regions flooded, and approximately 50.000 people have been evacuated from their homes (Task Force...

Brownfields can bring forward unique spatial qualities in the urban environment: spatial exceptionality, re-usable infrastructures &amp; imperfection that could bring forward the experience of being in a whole other world, while being in the middle of a city. However, these sites are often deconstructed, because they lack a direct financial or...

This graduation project is the heritage design of an abandoned factory in the Estação neighborhood, Faro, Portugal. The aim of MSc3 Graduation Studio: Revitalising Heritage is to develop and test values-based models for redesigning built heritage. There are three main phases: cultural significance survey, values-based redesign, and heritage...

Hospitals are known as functionally complex buildings in various ways, namely due to their non-trivial spatial connectivity requirements. A spatial configuration has an impact on human behavior, human movement patterns and should match with the operational logic of the buildings. In hospitals, there are several typical problems that can be...

One million homes will be needed in the Netherlands by 2030. Prefabrication in the construction industry can contribute to construct affordable houses, but that results often in standardized and not customized designs. These repetitive designs can be overcome through the introduction of mass-customization in architecture. Computational...

According to the Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu (RIVM), there will be more focus on tackling the unhealthy effects of urbanization in the near future. This together with the presence of a large stock of vacant buildings and other developments within these urban areas and the challenges which are formed by the developments in...

How will we live together? With this graduation project a strategy has been developed to transform vacant heritage into cyclifiers, buildings that have a positive impact on their environment by creating a way of living together in balance with nature, humans, and buildings. Social public functions with a focus on healthy living, as well as a...

The vector field method was originally proposed to guide a single fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a desired path. In this work, a non-uniform vector field method is proposed that changes in both magnitude and direction, for the purpose of achieving formations of UAVs. As compared to related work in the literature, the...

Historic Structures are commonly coated with mortar layers (plasters, renders, flooring) for protection and decoration. These well finished architectural stratigraphic surfaces often suffer from deterioration, such as lack of adhesion or detachment between support and mortar layers and even between mortar layers. Grouting and filling voids...

Computer architectures with weak memory models, such as ARMv8 and ARMv7, allow memory accesses to be reordered in many situations.<br/>Therefore, weak memory models may cause a program to exhibit more behavior than a strong memory model, such as x86.<br/>Fency is a static analysis tool that inserts memory fences to ensure that a program exhibits...

The need for relating stakeholders with requirements and the need for systems modeling are the main drivers for this thesis. Relating stakeholders with requirements is beneficial in order to balance the interests of all stakeholders associated with complex design projects. The variability in types of stakeholders and information abundance in...

The project is situated in the Sphinxkwartier in Maastricht, positioned in-between <br/>the inner city and the urban hinterlands. Underneath the fast pace of the city and factory, nature moves slowly, cascading down from the lock at the Maas river towards the fortification park, ever growing through the cracks.This project for an open air school...

Spatial planning and façade design in relation to public or private functions are factors that are considered within every design project. While this applies for newly constructed building projects, it can pose a significant challenge in redesign projects, especially when heritage values and a potential shift from an originally private function...
