Teaching in the summer term 2023
AOB presents the new course offering for the upcoming summer semester. The overarching theme is the development of creative and technically sophisticated solutions for construction tasks using sustainable building materials. Both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in dealing with new materials and production methods will be taught. The programme is aimed at students who want to expand their skills in the field of modern construction.
During the White Week, the „geosourced prototyping workshop“ is offered as an excursion to Brussels. The course is intended for all students who want to expand their practical skills in working with natural building materials. Participants will work in small groups and have the opportunity to develop and implement their own projects. Students will be supported by our lecturers, who will be able to share their experience and expertise. Registration is possible for both Master’s and Bachelor’s students.
For the first time, „BXL Circular Hub“ will be offered as a free design course for Bachelor students. The module will look at the development of a place for production in the city as part of the Brussels KANAL Plan, including recycling and local production of building materials in the sense of a circular economy. We will design the circular hub, a production site for several Brussels companies involved in the production and distribution of circular building materials that through synergies of their production processes and knowledge form a catalyst for the change of the construction sector.
In the studio „the architect changemaker“ continues the M2 project from the winter semester. Here, the focus is also on practical implementation of the previous research as well as scaling up the developed geo-based materials, which will the tested in 1:1 prototypes.
AOB is looking forward to the summer term!
Registration is possible at RWTHonline.
