Delft Scenarios is a case-study based research and design program. Students on this program will take on the challenge of researching potential interventions for the municipality of Delft, including the current condition of Delft in relation to the rest of the region and in comparison to similar cities across Europe and in the U.S. The main focus for the development of various scenarios will be to enhance opportunities and ambitions with special attention to the built-environment. This will include a close examination of challenges faced by the city of Delft itself, including changes in population, the economy, the environment and society.
Students will take part in a studio which runs like a normal design office, working as a team to produce both individual and group results which are intended to be an open and suggestive approach to the issues being examined.
