(Inter)national Facades: International Facade Master: WHY? by Arie Bergsma (28 May 2009)

1,686

Published on

Arie Bergsma opens with a quickscan of the current international focus on the facade theme, stating the development is a result of optimization within the facade industry. He relates this shift to an increasing demand for knowledge exchange and stipulates the need for active participation by education (and research) institutes.
The 'International Facade Master' is a specialization within the Master of Science (MSc) in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences at the Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft (The Netherlands) responding to this demand. In his lecture, Arie explains 'WHY?' and how.

Transcript of "(Inter)national Facades: International Facade Master: WHY? by Arie Bergsma (28 May 2009)"

  1. 1. (Inter)national Facades Mini conference Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft, The Netherlands 28 May 2009 ergsma ( TU Delft) : WHY? Arie B a l Fa c a de Master In ter nation
  2. 2. International Façade Master WHY? Arie Bergsma TU Delft Faculty of Architecture Chair Design of Construction BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
  3. 3. Our homework/some questions: • ……. • What is an international façade? • What are historically typical Dutch facades? • What makes Dutch façade special today? • What are Dutch facades internationally known for? • What determines this specialism? Is it the culture, climate,….? • Who determines this specialism? (building industry, architects, clients, media like television, internet?) • Should we educate for the national or the international market? • Can you create a Dutch national façade when you are not Dutch? • ……… BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
  4. 4. Example: (inter)national façade  specialism & complexity - Expertise - Level of complexity - Quality - Skills - Capacity - Status - Communication -Transport - Economy - Supply and demand -Etc. BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
  5. 5. EPS (Sto; GE) Sand-lime brick (Xella, GE) Example: (inter)national façade  material & products Stucco (Sto, GE) - Geographic scale - Supply and demand - Quality Pinewood frame (FI, S) - Esthetics - Tradition - Knowledge Insulating glazing (SGG, Fr) - Etc.

  7. 7. supply and demand, esthetics, knowledge, tradition, geographic scale, expertise, level of complexity, economy, Why national or international façade?: skills, status, globalisation, transport, communication, internet, network of skills and capacities,etc. BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
  8. 8. My opinion: (Almost) every façade is western society is international, depending on scale level and point of view. Interesting question is: what are the mechanisms responsible for this international context? BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
  9. 9. supply and demand, esthetics, knowledge, tradition, geographic scale, expertise, level of complexity, economy, Why (international) façade program?: skills, status, globalisation, transport, communication, internet, network of skills and capacities,etc. BOUT-DOC Mini Conference - (inter)national facade - 28-05-09
