This small booklet contains the inaugural speeches of Th. K. van Lohuizen and Cor van Eesteren on their appointments as professors at the Technical College of Delft. The texts provide novel insights into their respective teaching programs, and appear here for the first time in English. An analytical reflection on their work by the architectural historian Herman van Bergeijk introduces them.

Over many centuries, cities around the world have demonstrated an astounding resilience as they have prepared for, responded to and recovered from natural and man-made disasters. In view of current challenges from earthquakes and tsunamis, from climate change and sea level rise, from migration and demographic transformation to war and terrorism, this conference invites papers that engage with the theme of resilience and the diverse tangible and intangible structures that support it.
From 17-21 July, our faculty will welcome some 500 planning historians from almost 50 countries during the 17th IPHS conference. For more info see http://iphs2016.org/
The Faculty of Architecture has a fabulous and extensive collection of chairs. To get them out of their shelves and into education, the Chair History of Architecture and Urban Planning went looking for partners within design education, and found them in the Chairs of Form & Modelling Studies and of Architecture of the Interior.
During the past semester three design courses challenged students to start a dialogue with a chair, and design a lamp, table or set inspired by it. This initiative aimed at promoting design through collections led to remarkable results. Come and see for yourself, the resulting exhibition in the Modelling Hall opens Feb. 18th, 15:30.
The course teaches students to become aware of the wide-ranging impact that petroleum has had on the physical landscape of our cities and on our lifestyles and mindsets. It argues that attempts at creating a more sustainable architecture and urbanism need to acknowledge and understand these patterns to overcome them. Building on existing research on oil and Rotterdam that is developed into an augmented reality tool, students will do a close analysis of specific sites and propose design solutions for Rotterdam after oil. Among the design options will be a redesign of the site of the oil refinery in Pernis. Working in groups with students from different disciplinary backgrounds (architecture, urbanism, real estate and housing, heritage, history, media) will experiment design conditions as they exist outside the university and will produce a collective final project.
From June 11th to 13th TU Delft will host a workshop on Planning History with speakers from around the world. Students in the history thesis workshop will be able to help prepare the event. Please contact Carola Hein for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nederland is een stedenland. In de loop van tien eeuwen ontstond een dicht patroon van kleine, grote, oude en nieuwe steden. Hoe is dat patroon ontstaan en hoe heeft het zich ontwikkeld? En waarom zien onze steden eruit zoals ze eruitzien? Jaap Evert Abrahamse en Reinout Rutte brengen met de Atlas van de Verstedelijking duizend jaar stedenbouw in Nederland samenhangend in beeld. Aan de hand van foto’s, schilderijen en nieuw getekende kaartreeksen worden groei en krimp van de Nederlandse steden inzichtelijk gemaakt. Actuele thema’s als herbestemming, wederopbouw en de ontwikkeling van binnensteden en stadsranden krijgen speciale aandacht.
