The first Room For Discussion on ‘Inclusiveness’ was successfully held on 28th February.
We were joined by a diverse group of students, employees and professors. The discussion started with an informal report concluding information we collected from interviews and a survey conducted before the event. After a short-time panel discussion, the participants were randomly divided into 6 to 8 person/group to have in-depth discussion on critical issues. We want to thank you all for being there with us! Following the event articles and booklet will be produced to continuing sharing the discussion in BK. Read more here.
Organizers: Catherine Koekoek, XIE Hai(ARGUS), Nihat Mert Ogut (BouT), Meryam Ajari (FSR), Ijsbrand Heeringa (Polis).

Within the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, the Architecture track and its education seems to focus on the practice, a future of being an architect. Along with the projects various levels of research take place, but seem to be largely focus on executing theory, rather than generating: knowledge gained is often used to apply in design. Research done within the faculty is usually left unnoticed by the many Master’s students.
With this point of departure, ARGUS’ PhD Day tries to make visible the connection between research and education, and the relation between architectural practice and theory. The day offers a space to delve into the world of PhD’s, promoting a focus on research within the student’s university education and tries to answer questions on how to start a PhD-trajectory in the first place.
