Bowkunde Proposal / Sid Wichienkuer

12:48 - 12 June, 2009

On May 13, 2008, Bouwkunde, the faculty of architecture building at Delft University, was unexpectedly consumed by a devastating fire. Before the incident, the building had created a social and education environment where ideas and criticism were shared freely.  The faculty saw this terrible loss as a positive opportunity to take a fresh and critical look at the education of the future.  Thus, an open international ideas competition was organized in 2009 for the design of a new building.  California-based architect Sid Wichienkuer‘s proposal for the new building aims to restore the creative atmosphere Bouwkunde offered its users.
