Are you curious to know what the newest possibilities in building design look like? Would you like to know the capabilities of tomorrow's design tools? Or maybe you would like to help develop the tools which enable the realisation of the great buildings of the future?
Whether it is 3D-printing of houses or optimising kilometer high Solar Updraft Towers, enabling the structural engineer to evaluate countless conceptual design alternatives quickly or designing with re-use or decomissioning in mind, each research in our lab tries to rise to the great challenges of the future. And you can be part of our lab! Currently there are numerous graduation topics available, but if you have a good idea involving computation, modelling, analysis, simulation or optimisation of the built environment BEMNext might be able to support you as well.
On Friday February 20th BEMNext lab will host a colloquium during which some of the most recent developments will be displayed, and you can pose any questions you may have. Obviously the presentations will be concluded with some afternoon drinks. Will we see you there?
Ir. Rob Doomen is a boardmember and partner at Pieters Bouwtechniek, but above all a structural consultant at heart. A combination of in-depth technical knowledge and managerial human-interaction skills make him exceptionally good at explaining complex structural concepts to anyone. At the BEMNext colloquium he will discuss the methods used within Pieters Bouwtechniek to design the most extraordinary and innovative structures.
