Opening Lecture

The Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen will kick off with the Opening Lecture. Each year we invite an interesting speaker, who is active in the built environment, to give a lecture about his/her projects. We look for interesting and recent projects that spark the interest.

 

The opening lecture of the 19th edition of the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen will be given by Abel Groenewolt, a researcher at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction in Stuttgart. He is an alumnus of the Eindhoven university of technology specialising in architecture and building technology and worked as a researcher at the chair of Architecture and Building systems at ETH Zurich. In line with this year’s theme, Beyond the Walls, he will be talking about the core of his work which revolves around application of robots in timber construction and the development of digitally assisted design processes for structurally informed timber constructions. With his immense knowledge of architecture and building technology this ought to be an interesting lecture for all students who truly want to look beyond the walls!

 

Career Event

The highlight of the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen is the Career Event. Over 40 companies, working in the built environment, will attend this year’s event. The companies at the market focus on the different mastertracks at the university, allowing students to ask specific questions about their tracks.

Lunch Lectures

This year also two lunch lectures are added to the program. The companies EGM architecten and Inbo will both do a lunch lecture this year!

On Thursday November 15th EGM architecten will take you into the world of Design Tools for the Future.  

Designing for the future has always been an important and interesting topic that we get conscious about during our studies. Besides doing projects as a great architecture firm they also put a large emphasis on designing tools to improve the usage of buildings. The tools help creating scenario’s that will provide a better understanding of the usage of buildings. An example of one of their new tools is ‘Indoor analytics’. How these design tools exactly work and how this will lead to actual scenario’s that will improve the design of buildings will be discussed extensively during this lecture.

Inbo will talk about the soon to be built Tower K in Eindhoven on Tuesday November 20th.

Inbo is an architecture firm which cooperated with the famous Italian architect Stefano Boeri in the design of the Tower K. Together they made a unique design resulting in the form of a vertical forest which is believed to give the skyline of Eindhoven a real green boost.

The lecture provides a basis for discussion, opportunity to ask questions and to cultivate new and fresh ideas.

The Lunch Lectures will take place on Thursday November 15th 2018 and Tuesday November 20th 2018 during the lunchbreak in the Trappenzaal, Vertigo.

Location

You can find the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen in the Vertigo building at the TU/e site. Leaving the station at the North side, the side of the busses, then you will be able to see the big green building with the bright red TU/e letteres on top. The building is also visible on the home page and in the beginning of the aftermovie. This is the building where it all happens. The building can be accessed by the big stairs in the North facade. Thus you have to walk around “de Zwarte Doos” towards the grassfield, then the stairs will be visible. Walking up the stairs and entering the building, you will first walk into the Trappenzaal, which is a lecture room. By the end of the Trappenzaal, up the stairs, there are two double glass doors, leading you into Plaza, where the Career Event will take place. We look forward to seeing you there!
