WORMHOLES Awakening togetherness in Belgrade passages I was not born in Belgrade, but I have found many great loves there among them a love for the city itself. This love is an irrational thing, but it is the impulse which drove me to think about how I can make that dear city into a better […]

THE KUMAMOTO Memorial Site Never Ending Memories in Japan My project is deeply connected with my experience of earthquakes in Japan. A severe earthquake hit my hometown Kumamoto last spring. Talking to victims and hearing their sad stories I started to think of two topics to relate to for my design: sharing memories and the […]

The Room of an Architect Rethinking the reality of a young architect’s life-work situation This project is a representation and proposal for the precarious life and work conditions of nomadic architecture students and young architects. I bring up this issue about the uncertainty of today’s architectural profession because it is frequently unnoticed and considered quite […]

The Unfinished House – What if this was great? My research has as a starting point the phenomenon of the incomplete houses left permanently under construction in Albania, an archipelago of unfinished buildings scattered all over the country. A whole landscape filled with concrete skeletons, some of them being in use, others completely vacant, and […]

The street as a communal space Faro, Portugal Streets are spaces of collective memory; they are spaces that create a mental image of the urban environments in cities and they must offer, for instance, more facilities for its residents then just parking spaces. To recover local streets is in my view fundamental for a successful […]

The Domestic Vortex Two summers ago I visited the Venice Architecture Biennale. During a walk at the waterfront of Venice I noticed a rectangular island just before the island Murano. I discovered it was the Venetian city cemetery Isola di San Michele. The defensive walls that trace the island’s contours function as an optical and […]

Take away the stress of people with Alzheimer In the Netherlands almost 200.000 people suffer from Alzheimer. As the disease is age related, a troubled future unfolds for our ageing society; a future that is similar to the progress of Alzheimer’s itself. In the first stages of Alzheimer, the person involved is unaware of the […]

To Be CONTINUED – Local identity in Takasaki Why are old buildings treated so different in The Netherlands in comparison with Japan? Japanese houses are often demolished after 30 years while in The Netherlands some century-old buildings are still being preserved and in use, sometimes with a different function, like churches. I became very intrigued […]

Sisi Li – Graduation...

REACTIVATE THE HUTONG A strategy to save a fragile social housing typology in Beijing I became interested in the Chinese Hutong due to a personal experience of getting lost in a modern residential Hutong district in Beijing. I did not like the atmosphere with dark alleys and high grey walls, and started to rethink the […]

Helan Miao – Graduation...

DESIGN FOR LEFT-BEHIND CHILDREN IN YUXIAN VILLAGE My graduation is based on a personal interest in a current Chinese social issue. Due to China’s urbanization process in the last decade, a large number of villagers moved from the countryside to the city. This phenomenon created a new generation of rural children, the so-called ‘left- behind […]

MUZENPLEIN. In Search of New Life for an Urban Space There is a place that I fear the most in The Hague due to a bad memory of being robbed: Muzenplein (the square of Muses). It is a square close to the Royal Academy in the heart of De Resident: a prestigious high-rise business district […]

THE FINAL SPACE TO STAY Have you ever imagined a space where you would like to be in the final moments of your life? What would you like to see and feel before you close your eyes forever? And how do you picture your final place? Without a doubt, the final moment of life is […]

Elena Conrad –...

GASTSPIEL. Strategies for an interim. My research started with my personal observations of idle urban spaces. This inspired me to look into possibilities for temporary transformation. What intrigued me about temporary spaces are the out-of-the-ordinary experiences they evoke and facilitate. The analyses of case studies of temporary projects led me to an in-depth research of […]

OCKENBURGH: A COOPERATIVE HOSTEL The Ockenburg youth hostel in The Hague, designed by the Dutch architect Frank van Klingeren, is a modular, flexible building made of a dark steel structure. It was built as the extension of a 19th century villa containing three stories with space for 400 beds. The hostel is fallen into abeyance […]

Emilija Juodyte. Graduation...

Unbind the School Education shapes society and society’s social-political issues influence education. By taking an extreme case of a Post-Soviet neighbourhood in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, I analyze how the monotonous school buildings in these mono-functional parts of the city can be spatially freed from leftovers of the Soviet system. How can these school […]

Elide Mozzorecchi. Graduation...

A Home 2.0 The premise of Home 2.0 – From daily routine to daily rituals starts from a personal assumption: the domestic environment has lost importance. The meaning given to the daily actions of people at home has almost disappeared. Home 2.0 is a statement on the meaning and the importance of the link between domestic […]

Sorry, we are working! Since the 1980s the demand for office space has been decreasing. We are stuck with an enormous qualitative and quantitative mismatch in supply and demand of offices. This has many causes like the excessive supply of offices built in the 80s and 90s, the stagnant economic growth, demographic changes and flexible working.
