LOSS AND OPPORTUNITY DESIGN COMPETITION DELFT 2008
Competition proposal for the New Bouwkunde Building for the TU Delft with Georgia Voudouri, Ioulietta Zindrou
The destruction of the Bouwkunde building caused a striking architectural void as well as striking disturbance of its Social Network. Suddenly, a central and important building was missing in the Campus Grid.
In our approach, we face this moment of social discontinuity with the transformation of the original campus grid. Particularly, we use a mathematical algorithm, which has many applications in evolutionary biology as well as developmental biology:
The Fibonacci algorithm:
1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34
By applying these algorithms several options appeared of where to place the new building. In the end, the new building can fill the gap and re-adapt the void. The result is a transformed Bouwkunde Campus, which can successfully encounter the social discontinuity.
