New display of TU Delft Special Collection objects in Teaching Lab

Nieuws - 03 september 2018

As from 30 August 2018 until February 2019 unique objects from the TU Delft Library’s Special Collections are displayed in the Teaching Lab. The display is curated by Charlotte van Wijk, a researcher at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment and curator of the faculty’s Chair Collection.

Many items were originally used for educational purposes at the department of Decorative Arts or the Freehand Drawing department. The story behind brings you back to the late 19th century when freehand drawing classes were offered to all engineering students as a minor specialisation to sharpen observation skills and broaden the imagination of students.
