Report
“You need to give creative people ample space and at the same
time put them on a long lead. Managing creativity is one of the
most difficult things. It implies a willingness to bend the rules,
make mistakes, accept unfinished ideas and to live with
ambiguity and chaos.”
Manfred Kets de Vries (1996)
• Founded in 1904
• Research and education regarding architecture in its broadest
sense
• Three thousand students, hundreds of researchers, teachers
and professors
• An international learning community
Today we are seeing unprecedented urban challenges around
the world. These will only increase in the coming decades. The
Faculty combines unconventional thinking with robust research,
to investigate and create clever solutions, for living and working
in the future.
The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
works closely with national and international universities,
private parties and the public sector.
“I found Bouwkunde to be an excellent faculty with amazing
facilities. It offers an incredible selection of seminars, debates,
lectures and workshops thus providing a solid architectural
infrastructure for ambitious students. My study at Bouwkunde
helped prepare me to work in the highly competitive office
of OMA.”

BACHELOR DEGREE
• Three-year programme
• From the technical aspects of building to the responsible planning
of the Netherlands as a whole
• Fully integrated, broad, robust
• Leads to BSc
MSc Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences
Applicants can choose between one of five tracks:
Architecture uses design as a means to deal
with the technical, social and spatial challenges
encountered in the built environment.
Building Technology encompasses a broad
spectrum of engineering and architectural design
skills that lead to one of the dominant professions
of the future: the sustainable designer.
Urbanism draws on the Dutch tradition of
combining urban design, landscape architecture
and spatial planning.
Real Estate and Housing engages with the
managerial dimension and processes of the built
environment and the construction industry.
Landscape Architecture deals with design
through all scales as an architectonic
composition of natural and artificial materials.

THE HEART OF THE BK CITY COMMUNITY
The Faculty’s building is the heart of the BK community. A
stunning building with a stunning interior. Completely renovated
and used as a living lab, BK City includes an auditorium
designed by MVRDV, model making rooms, two cafes and
studio spaces for students and researchers. BK City proudly
presents hundreds of lectures, seminars, presentations,
exhibitions, workshops and masterclasses, often open to the
general public.
The Faculty researchers and students work on exhibitions
within and outside BK City.
• Exhibiting excellent student or research work.
• Contributions to international exhibitions abroad, such as the
Venice Biennale, the Shenzhen Biennale, the Moscow Biennale
and the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam.
RESEARCH
“The faculty delivers excellent research relating to architecture
and the built environment. The core subjects in which research
is carried out include design, planning, engineering, management
and geomatics. The majority of the research is concerned with
interventions in the built environment: the construction and
modification of buildings, urban areas and landscapes.”
