It focuses on developing scenarios and strategic designs that address the future of Delft Municipality in four extreme scenarios. 2019 concept, coordination & management, tutoring Dutch Scenarios Resilience  Cities and regions all over the world are reinventing their positions; either driven by changes in national policies decentralizing governance or reacting to the reality of competition and collaboration on subjects such as economy, services or the changing number of inhabitants. This often originates from a desire or perceived necessity to respond to the changing ambitions of industries and citizens, as well as to global influences.  Due to the complex and intricate nature of upcoming challenges, there’s a need to improve decision-making and policy processes just as much as there’s a need to service and renew spatial structures as demands are changing. One can state that changes in urban developments are driven by changes in population and their needs. Energy and sustainability issues have become a common consciousness deserving appropriate response in terms of policy and spatial planning. One can easily add to these examples.   DESIGN THINKING These current challenges […]

Indeed it is the most used construction material in the world and thus can be found in many places and applications where economics are crucial. Nonetheless, concrete is also widely deployed to express specific architectural and aesthetic desires. Concrete’s nature of seamlessly copying the formwork it is made in - in terms of shape and texture -, makes it an ideal material to create many different expressions with. Varying from raw and rough ‘beton brute’, to sleek and slender high-performance structures and ultra-dense maintenance-free surfaces. It provides designers with endless possibilities to create slightly varying repetitions with pre-cast façade elements, truly three dimensional spatially complex building components, and as many […]

warmbeton su Hands-on workshop for architecture students of Syracuse University. Based on the material porperties of insulating, load-bearing, ultra-lightweight concrete, its architectural potential is investigated. 2015 concept, coordination & management, tutoring Workshop Warmbeton Syracuse UniversityMany architects seem to look back with envy towards their illustrious predecessors from the early 20th century like Felix Candela, Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer. The main topic of their envy turns out to be the possibility to truly built monolithic. Nowadays made virtual impossible due to environmentally driven building physics requirements, labor costs combined with traditional formwork technologies and a wide-spread negative perception of weathering of fair faced concrete. However, the idea to be able to build in one material still evokes as almost magical attraction.  Notwithstanding the inability for those captured by this ambition to work monolithic to explain their desire – one material may lead to one detail, ‘one’ is beautiful in and by itself, simple is better, less is more, and so on – there are in fact more objective arguments available as well. Due to increasing insulation demands and due to a more and more structured building process, various materials have surfaced for various specific tasks. Concrete for structural requirements, foam […]

The glass skyscrapers, brick- and concrete house and the concrete office building, all created in the early 1920’s, constituted a formal break with his masters -Schinkel and Behrens- and led to an international breakthrough for Mies.In Mies’ Critical Biography, by Franz Schulze and Edward Windhorst, the authors suggest that the architectural quality of the concrete office building, had it been realized, would be totally dependent on its detailing. The architectural detail which is completely absent in the only drawing of the building, could make it or break it.In this workshop the participating students […]

Combined with an exploding range of materials and techniques to chose from we often see a practice that is either strongly focused on iconic qualities of buildings, or on carefully engineered sets of performances and materials, fully rationalized and mainly functional.This competition seeks to investigate 'elegance' in architecture and concrete.

plastic-Opacity

concrete design competition & master class on plastic-opacity Structural Engineer and director of Adams Kara Tayler, Hanif Kara, led the second cycle of the Concrete Design Competition under the theme plastic-OPACITY. He challenged the participants to explore a solid kind of transparency, in which the core properties of concrete being massive and moldable are exploited to generate a formal language that surpasses a solely heavy and dull 'traditional' experience of concrete. 2005 - 2006 concept, coordination & management, tutoring, publication cameraNicole van der Veldevideobureaubakker assignment‘concrete is as concrete doesn’t’ – MassumiRecent developments in concrete such as high strength concrete and self-compacting mixtures have improved its strength and processability. These new properties are bringing a different level of inspiration to architecture students and practitioners alike by generating new possibilities in themselves, which are much more than technical solutions to design ambitions whose motivations come from other sources. Already explorations of concrete’s inherent qualities such as mass, weight, density, strength and durability are leading to innovative applications. But new possibilities could open up an imaginative field if one could experiment with the degrees of opaqueness offered by concrete. If so, concrete would finally be able to add ‘transparency’ to its obvious plasticity, […]

Temptation

exploring light and atmosphere in concrete for divine space For the ‘Last Temptation of Christ’ project students where asked to investigate the potential of concrete in enhancing the atmosphere or serenity in their chapels. Besides concrete as an appropriate structural material its possibilities in creating specific tactility, lighting, color schemes and heaviness where to be challenged and explored. Ideally leading to an evident use of the material in relation to the formal and programmatical design. In several series of cubes students tested simultaneously interior qualities like form and lighting – on scale – as well as exterior tactile possibilities in real size. Each series of cubes built upon the results and experiences of the previous series, culminating in presentation models for each chapel design.Why… What… and How is this concrete (?) are question that should not even arise but be apparent and manifest in the final results. 2004 concept, coordination & management, tutoring tutors Siebe Bakker, René van Zuuk support ENCI - Hans Köhne host Eindhoven Technical University

ROBUSTNESS

Concrete Design Competition & Master Class on ROBUSTNESS The inaugural cycle of the Concrete Design Competition had as theme ROBUSTNESS. Curator Michael Speaks broadened the notion on ROBUSTNESS to one including flexibility and adaptability, next to sturdiness and resilience. He also added ideas on robust design practices as a means to achieve robust results. A notion that seamlessly extends the ambitions and format of the competition itself. 2003 - 2004 concept, coordination & management, tutoring, publication cameraOkke van den Broekvideobureaubakker assignmentIn this inaugural competition students are asked to submit architectural proposals that engender ROBUSTNESS in/with/through concrete. In order to encourage the most diverse and original designs possible, no predetermined design criteria will be given or stipulated. Submissions are not limited to any scale and can range from small architectural detail, to interior, to free-standing building to landscape proposals. It is expected, however, that all proposals rigorously examine and make use of the manifest and latent qualities of concrete often hidden from view by conventional thinking and normal application. Competition entries will not be judged by stylistic, programmatic, typological, formal or other architecture design criteria, but rather according to the innovative use of concrete to achieve a high degree of design […]
