Today, as well as in previous decades, students at our faculty have been inspired by the work of others. This is the main reason that the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment has built up an collection of chairs and models over the decade. A large part of this collection is not only of great importance for education and research within the faculty, but has also emerged from it. Many of these were the result of students’ efforts, working towards a common goal during a research or design project. Together the collections form a record of educational activities in the past, but also a new source of inspiration and of information for the education and research of the present.
