During this event you and your team will be given a challenging and innovative case study by one of the three participating companies. In the morning of the 22nd of March the case will be introduced and the designs will be presented at the end of the morning of the 23rd. Here you can find an indication of the program:
22th of March
9:00 - 10:00 : introduction and presentation of the casus, given by the company
10:00 - 13:45 : during these hours you have time to work on your case. You can decide for yourself how to organize this.
13:45: deadline VO
23th of March
9:00 - 10:00: feedback from the company. You will be divided into a time slot of 15 minutes.
10:00 - 11:00 : time to p(if necessary) work on your design
During a small lecture we will explain the do’s and don’ts of building with wood, followed by a design challenge.
We challenge you to design an international Climbing Centre. The sport will make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics and will feature three disciplines: Speed, Bouldering and Lead. A country without mountains asks for a challenging Climbing Centre to be able to compete on an international level. The stacking of functions is complex due to the different climbing disciplines and supporting program.
We challenge you to design a building in wood with a flexible layout, big spans and as much natural daylight as possible.
Case study | ABT
How well are we, designers and engineers, tuned to design ‘inclusively’?
What does that actually mean? Can we contribute to the effort to design ‘for everyone’ through engineering? Can it help us identify or even overcome the obstacles faced in the design process?
In this case study we will research this by analysis of the ‘House of Delft’.
Is this project an inclusive design? And, if not, what could have been done about it?
Past projects teach us about designing for the future.
Case study | De Groot & Visser
De Groot & Visser has been commissioned to replace the facade of the Rotterdam Science Tower in order to achieve a better energy label for the building. This building consists of 2600 windows. These windows with laminated glazing are still in good condition, which is why De Groot & Visser is looking for a way to reuse them. It’s up to you to give these windows a new life!
