On the 31st of May, Andreja Andrejevic and Jasper Spiegeler from DPA|Cauberg-Huygen and Harold Vreeburg from Croonwolter&dros|TBI provided us with a lunch lecture.
Firstly, DPA|Cauberg-Huygen talked about the use of parametric design. The standard calculations are hereby stored in algorithms and made visible in 3D; Making it more clear what the differences in design mean for the physics of the building. Two projects created with this design were highlighted in the presentation: the Hyde Park project in Hoofddorp, where the amount of daylight was calculated, and Pit Lab, a project where the ventilation is calculated. In the next INSide, 2017-2018 #2, there will be an article by DPA|Cauberg-Huygen about this concept.
The second and last speaker of the day was Harold Vreeburg form Croonwolter&dros|TBI. His presentation was about the company TBI and about the plans to make the Netherlands gas-free by the year 2050. Harold thinks this is possible, when the way of building is different and when the building sector will be more innovative than the last thousands of years. After his presentation, a discussion started about this subject.
We would like to thank the presenters and their companies for their presentations and hope to see them next year too!
