Op het gebied van onderzoek heeft de afdeling zich gepositioneerd tegen de achtergrond van het spanningsveld tussen Design en Engineering.
The research programme Design Engineering for the Built Environment is embedded in the Department of Architectural Engineering & Technology. It seeks for resilience, innovation and sustainability at various scales within the design of buildings and the built environment. The strength of the programme lies in an interdisciplinary approach and direct interaction between a broad range of expertise domains represented within the research programme.
Design & History
Glass and Transparency
It aims to increase the design possibilities of transparent structures by developing new manufacturing techniques and investigating materials uncommon to building practice. Even more importantly, it seeks to produce transparent building components and structures with predictable and therefore safe failure behavior.
