Today worked out perfectly and we had great weather! Lots of people were interested in the project, as you can see on the pictures. We also talked with some people of various student initiatives who want to contribute to the project, so it was a nice vibe and an inspiring day!
We had some debate about a new name for the project, so it would speak to everyones imagination more. We’re not certain about a new name yet, but here are the ones the visitors liked best: Read More

Today the second (heavily modified) shipping container was put in place near the former location of the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Delft! Just in time, because tomorrow is the Dutch Day of Architecture, as I talked about before.
We also put up the exhibition panels in the first 12 meter (40 feet) container, and when you take a look at the pictures, you can take a sneak peek at what you can expect. Read More

Today the first 12 meter long container has been put in place!
This means the start of the sustainable container village project!
As said before, anyone interested should come this Saturday the 26th of June between 14.00 and 17.00 to the former Architecture faculty location to get more information and possibly participate in this project!

At the moment Blue Point of View is the working title for our ongoing project with (Delft) blue shipping containers at the former Faculty of Architecture site in Delft. The main goal is to create the centre for sustainable innovation on the university campus.
Design By Evolution’s entry for the Spoorzone competition (click here for more) resulted in a question by Ineke Hulshof of Hulshof Architecten about designing a project similar to our competition entry at the former site of the Faculty of Architecture. Read More

In the first competition entered by Design By Evolution, our first honorable mention is also awarded!
We are working on a future project now at the Delft University campus because of this competition. The progress will be shown during the ‘Dag van de Architectuur‘ (Day of Architecture) at the building site on the former plot of the burned down Architecture Faculty.
Project collaborators: Roland Reen and Koen Kegel.

Ornamatics is a subject about computer aided modelling and drafting protocols – in combination with new production technologies – which are giving impulses to new ways of shaping architectural building elements.
The main goal is learning about new (digital) fabrication technologies like lasercutting, cnc milling and 3D printing.
