Timber has regained popularity in construction in recent years due to its ecological benefits. The connection methods used in this study play a vital role in the sustainability of structures and materials. Monomaterial timber connections are sustainable alternatives to metal fasteners and adhesives commonly used in construction. Wood is an...

The 2050 decarbonization goals coupled with the growing housing shortage in Europe intensify the pressure on new-build dwellings to enhance their energy performance. Beyond a zero operational energy, the focus has shifted towards reducing embodied carbon (EC). Against this backdrop, this study investigates the simultaneous impact of downsizing...

The challenge of global warming is an increasing concern of the 21st century. The concept of sustainability is therefore considered of high importance. A major problem of the Dutch government is the growing housing demand. Also after the WWII, the Netherlands faced a housing crisis, resulting in about 847,000 council houses. The massive number...

The construction industry’s impact on carbon emissions, pollution, and resource depletion necessitates innovative approaches to reduce environmental harm. This research explores the use of computational design, digital fabrication, and timber as a renewable material to mitigate the construction industry’s environmental impact. Timber is...

In recent years, the Netherlands has witnessed a growing housing shortage, prompting an ambitious plan by the government to address the demand through increased construction of new housing until 2050. Moreover, as part of environmental commitments, new dwellings and existing housing stock must align with current energy performance standards and...

As a threatening reality to the planet’s stability, climate change has forced the building industry to develop sustainable techniques and materials to fulfil the constant demand for infrastructure. Timber, as a biobased material, appears like a promising option for constructing highrise structures, a typology that, before the creation of...

<br/>Today, the building construction sector in the European Union consumes 40% of primary materials, and the same percentage of primary energy, making it an exhaustive industry responsible for resource depletion. At the same time the Netherlands is in need of more affordable housing. Drastic change is needed to produce the necessary housing in...

Rocha, Randy (author)
Due to population growth we need more buildings, but due to urbanization there are hardly any opportunities to densify in highly concentrated cities. While we inevitably need more buildings, we have to also take into account that the construction industry is one of the major contributors to climate change. In order to prevent further damage on...

Verschoor, Barten (author)
In our contemporary quest to live and build more sustainably, the lessons that one can learn from the understanding of vernacular architecture, as well as the use of (engineered) timber in construction are often praised. Like in many other European countries throughout history, timber once was the most important construction material in the...

van Leeuwen, Jimi (author)
Recently, there has been growing concerns about CO2-emissions, labour dynamics and demand volumes in the Dutch construction industry and industrialised timber constructions have the potential to help solve parts of these challenges. However, relatively little is known about how to identify pathways to adopt industrialised timber construction in...

This Master's thesis project is conceived in two parts. <br/><br/>The first part is the research project and is titled &lt;&lt;The Art of Acquiring Flow&gt;&gt; where the study assesses an architect’s ability to experience ‘design flow’, during the ideation phase, based on the type of design tool utilized. In order to test the hypothesis, I...

Beijaard, Adrian (author)
In face of climate change, a large challenge was posed to the construction section as the European Union introduced requirements to reduce CO2 emissions; these must be reduced by 40% before 2030, and all member states have to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. At the time of writing, the construction industry in the Netherlands is respon¬sible...

The project “Activating the glass box” aims to find out how the existing built heritage can be not an obstacle, but the key to the comprehensive dense city of the near future. It showcases the contextual design approach and opportunities for the unlisted 50’s-60’s international style office buildings - “glass boxes”- whose potential is not yet...

A structure is expected to remain for 30-300 years. Building services are most likely integrated into floors and wear out or become obsolete every 7-15 years (Brand, 1995). Currently, 58% of all timber products are landfilled (Lucas et al., 2017). To ensure timber structures’ long and useful service life, adaptability and integration with...

Events of recent years highlighted the need and the urgency for increased local and regional resilience. 83% of the total EU area considered ‘rural’ will play a vital role in this challenging transition. Those areas not only present a massive opportunity in producing bio-based circular materials for the new economy at scale but also offer a rich...

The Paris Agreement set goals to minimize global warming by reducing CO2 emissions. In the Netherlands, the Paris Agreement is translated into policies that aim for circularity and sustainability at different governmental levels. These policies are directed at the sustainability transitions within different fields, such as the built environment....

The housing shortage in the Netherlands and the high contribution of the construction sector towards climate change demands a different approach towards affordable housing. A combination of the concept of a 'housing cooperative' and the implementation of 'low-tech principles' on all scales of the design tries to bring back affordable housing...

When I first visited the site of the project, the Binckhorst in The Hague, I noticed the scatteredness of the place. Everything is disconnected and hard to be reached by foot or bicycle. In fact, most functions are oriented to cars, trucks, and industrial machines. What is particularly interesting, however, is that there are a number of hidden...
