Explore Lab

Research driven graduation-laboratory for exploration of fascinations in the profession of architecture.

Focus and approach

Explore Lab is an exceptional thesis laboratory for students with a unique fascination which cannot be explored in any of the ‘regular’ thesis labs. This opportunity is only for highly motivated students with a specific interest. While engaged in their own fascinations, the explorers work together to design their own curriculum including workshops, lectures, excursions and visiting critics. Students do not consume the Explore Lab, but actually create it.

Selection Procedure

The Explore Lab starts twice a year: in September and in February. Some weeks before the general date of registration for courses and projects an email will be sent to notify students about how to apply for Explore Lab. Students will be invited for an intake interview at which they will explain and defend their interest for the lab.
