Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment has created 12 new positions for PhD researchers. For information on the topics please visit the vacancies webpage.
I am happy to announce I will be supervising one of them along with a team of excellent colleagues. The topic considers the social relevance of circularity and its potential in driving participatory planning or -better yet- self-organisation processes at community scale. You will be involved in real-life experimentation and analytical prototyping through an anthropological approach. You will help plan, coordinate, and monitor circular initiatives at neighborhood scale in collaboration with locals. Furthermore, you will be part of a series of design workshops that will explore design with locally harvested materials and how that ultimately affects the designers’ role.
Deadline for application is 19/02/2021. For more information on Circular Community Challenges please visit this page
