Yearbook 12 13
The Design Research Yearbook of the Built Environment faculty at Eindhoven University of Technology presents a selection of graduation projects. In the case of architectural design, the format of the research is the graduation studio in which a common research project is carried out during a single semester before each student designs an individual graduation project during a subsequent semester. The research conducted by each graduation studio is described in this book and represented by one or two projects. The research projects in design systems, building physics and construction design are defined by themes staff and PhD researchers work on and whose subthemes are worked out in individual graduation projects.
The selected projects together represent the three strategic visions of the Faculty: Sustainable Transformation, Smart Living Environment, and Quality of Life. The work of alumni Wiel Arets introduces this collection of ideas and research with his own approach: Total Design.
