Under the auspices of the Graduate School of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology, the architectural research group ‘Borders & Territories’ (B&T) invites PhD dissertation proposals to help expand its doctoral research portfolio.
The B&T is part of the Department of Architecture’s research program ‘Architecture Project and its Foundations’ and is coordinated by dr. Marc Schoonderbeek and supervised by Prof. Michiel Riedijk. We invite interested academic and/or professional candidates who are qualified to pursue PhD-level research work aligned with the B&T group’s research agenda.
The B&T program offers a rich and challenging environment that provides rewarding research experience. The group consists of diverse, international academics and professional architects. The B&T research group facilitates in-depth, independent research work that relates to the major themes of the B&T’s program as well as educational activities.
For the new round of PhD candidacies, the B&T program will accept and consider proposals that will contribute to B&T’s existing research portfolio. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute innovative, leading-edge research work to the B&T research group.

This year’s EAAE conference, ‘For Example Delft’, will take place from the 31st of August until the 3rd of September at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment in Delft. Taking Delft as an example the conference addresses the various approaches in architecture education looking at the past, present and future in relation to the professional practise and architectural discipline. Starting from the observation that the broad field of architecture and the built environment carries a (re)assembled character that has lost its Modern, structured and disciplinary way. From which question are asked such as what architecture research currently means and upon which policies Delft as an institution acts.
The conference kicked off on Wednesday with the opening of a poster exposition led by Suzanne Komossa and Maurice Harteveld. This was be followed by three days filled with interesting lectures, seminars and excursions.
