[R]MIT Research Centre at Delft University of Technology: A Bridge between Research, Education, Society and Profession
Zijlstra, Hielkje
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n5 p9-15 May 2009
In 2006, we launched the [R]MIT Research Centre (Modification, Intervention Transformation) at the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology. [R]MIT was founded to respond to the need for an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to the transformation of the built environment. [R]MIT aims to bring momentum to the renewal of education and research, and sees improved relations between the scientific and the professional community as a key step in this process. The [R]MIT research programme stands at the epicentre of the current debate on continuity and change in architecture and construction. The conservation and transformation of existing objects is becoming more and more of a necessity, with social, economic and cultural implications. [R]MIT builds the bridge successfully between the profession, the society, education and research. (Contains 8 figures.)
