Building for Bouwkunde

MEMORY
AFTER FIRE, AFTERSUN
The Faculty of Architecture building is burnt; Architecture in The Netherlands is burnt; the image of the Architect is
burnt; the architect is burnt; the work of the architect is burnt, everybody can do the work of an architect; there is a
problem with the image of the architect, his prestige is damaged.
A burnt building – an opportunity, let hydrate and regenerate.
TO HIDRATE
We have to improve the image that the society has from the architect and we have to start from the educational level. The new Faculty of Architecture must be spread out through the campus. The students of Architecture must convince the other students that they are useful for the society.
Architects are nice, cool, handsome and even useful.
TO REGENERATE
The new faculty building must be a meeting point. The new building is very open and invites everybody. The building must provide the campus a
new public space. Inside the building only open spaces in order to exchange experiences between all the users.
The way of teaching architecture must be flexible- flex working- you don’t have to be in class to receive knowledge.
HIDRATE + REGENERATE = NEW SKIN
We are healing a damaged building; the building is as damaged as burnt skin.Anew skin must grow through the campus. The skin is perforated by the new FlexWorking IconicTower.
A Burnt building becomes an opportunity of changing the way of teaching architecture.
