UHasselt: Studio Degrowth
Date: 2020 - 2021
Our 2020 - 2021 postgraduate module at the University of Hasselt Faculty of Architecture and Arts in Belgium looks at the theme of degrowth in architecture through the two lenses of conversion/adaptation and sustainable construction.
Students will explore the impact and potential of sustainable material, proposing a design which employs them in the context of a practical refurbishment, looking at the architectural expression of different materials and methods of construction, using notions of adaptability, temporality and economy.
Within the overarching theme of Degrowth, the module seeks to investigate the architecture of buildings for the future, looking at their design and construction, and also their own future, including disassembly and reusability.
