Due to increasing human land use, the world’s biodiversity is declining. These losses of biodiversity in many places create problems for the resilience of the ecosystems in which we live. How we design our spaces has an impact on all the species that live in them. In order to protect and improve the biodiversity, spatial designers should change...

This research has two main purposes: (1) to show the quality of dominant nature, above man and (2) to demonstrate the investigation of biodiversity in a city environment both by designing a prototype of a dwelling. The city environment, in this case, is Amsterdam; the dwelling is designed in the Jordaan. The location is chosen because this...

The project explores the idea of exhibiting animals both in literal terms – the zoo for instance as a space for the display and containment of animals – and as a metaphorical construct for architecture’s relationship with nature, with enclosures and with artefacts. The Bestiary is proposed as a new way of exhibiting animals and as a new program...

In the Caribbean Sea, mesoscale anticyclonic ocean eddies impact the local ecosystem by mixing of low salinity river outflow with the nutrient-rich waters upwelling along the Venezuelan and Colombian coast. To gain insight into the physics and the ecological impact of these anticyclones, we performed a combined hydrographic and biological...

Consider the “efficiency” both in the physical and psychological way to value the residents’<br/>meaningful encounters with nature and build a future-proof green intervention which will last for a long-term and explore green innovations in architecture. I designed a public building as an insect-based ecology center as the ‘gate’ of the Noorder...

The project acts as a way to bring production back to the city as a part of everyday life in the year 2050, in a time when industry has become individualised as a result of the fourth industrial revolution. At the same time, additive manufacturing (3D-printing) makes it possible to produce just about anything; from shoes and textiles to...

Estuarine area, as a transition area between land and sea, is the most dynamic and complicated area, due to its unique location and diverse ecosystem, but yet it is also the most vulnerable and fragile area, as it may be plagued with flooding risk, erosion, subsidence and etc. As the diagram show below, estuary area is influenced by three...

The thesis project is a design exploration of a transition for Port of Rotterdam from a nature-based perspective into a productive landscape park. Productive landscape park is a place of co-existence where ecology and industry work together, rather against each other in order to remediate existing ecological damages in the port, promote...

Additional Thesis - All around the world many species are dying out locally or entirely due to interferences in their habitats. One of the big problems for marine life is the creation of migration barriers which preclude migrating species to complete their life cycle.Fish passages are a way for migrating species to get around obstructions in a...

Chris van Leeuwen (1920-2005) was a lecturer and later Professor of Ecology at the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology from 1970 until his retirement in 1987. His work not only formed the basis for thinking on sustainable built environments at the Faculty of Architecture, but also formed the basis for national policies...

The offshore wind industry is a growing market in Europe due to the sustainable energy targets of European Union. In the coming years the Dutch government will invest in offshore wind farms at the North Sea. For a contractor like Boskalis the inclusion of favorable ecological conditions in designs is a unique selling point and can help to win...

The Slufter is an estuary located in Texel’s North Sea dunes and protects the hinterland from flooding from the North Sea. As the multi actor environment and the diversity of values and functions associated with the Slufter are recognized, this research focuses on developing an approach for the district water board to broaden the knowledge base...

How to, a landscape architect, design with coastal natural processes? Coastal areas have stronger and more fluctuating natural variables than many sites in more sheltered areas. Understanding the past, present, and future form of these processes will allow the designer to shape a form and program that works with the site-specific...

Community acceptance still remains a challenge for wind energy projects. The most popular explanation for local opposition, the Not in My Backyard effect, has received fierce criticism in the past decade. Critics argue that opposition is not merely a matter of selfishness or ignorance, but that moral, ecological and aesthetic values play an...

Reinterpreting the brief of the 2008 competition "Building for Bouwkunde" through the lens of Ecologic thinking, a new faculty of Architecture for the University of Technology in Delft is designed as an Eco-system: an open "field of intensities" in which the users can define their own spaces and the fullest range of activities can take place.

In judging the middle to be a compromise, architectural practice has the tendency towards the extremes, producing rhetorical architectural gestures and self-fulfilling prophecies. After the coining of the term modernity in 1863 by Beaudelaire, as being the conjoining of the ephemeral and fleeting with the eternal and immutable Architecture has...
