On 13 May 2008, the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) was unexpectedly reduced to ashes by a devastating fire. It was shocking to see how this sturdy building, which was full of valuable collections and always bustling with activity, turned out to be so vulnerable. Both in a material and an emotional sense, the fire was undoubtedly a major loss. The fire shook the foundations of the Dutch architectural community. Nevertheless, this community soon joined forces to set to work again. The Faculty of Architecture in Delft was already renowned the world over for its decisive, innovative and pragmatic approach. And it is precisely thanks to this characteristic attitude that the Faculty’s sorrow regarding the loss was coupled with an enthusiastic and unflagging energy to enter a new phase. Indeed, the loss of the faculty building also offers new opportunities. Opportunities to take a fresh and critical look at the education of the future, opportunities to realise a modern, innovative and refreshing design for the university building, which can hold its own in terms of power and presence with the well-known Bouwkunde building from the years of Van den Broek and Bakema. Precisely because it intends to realise this specific ambition, the Faculty of Architecture has decided to organise an open international ideas competition, in preparation of a project competition for the new faculty building in 2009.


Follow-up to the ideas competition
The ideas that come out of this competition will be used to hone and draw up the definite programme of requirements for the new faculty of architecture and draw up the definite programme of requirements for the new faculty of architecture.

Based on the definite programme of requirements a project competition for the new building will be launched early 2009. This project competition will take the shape of a European Procurement process, the precise structure of which has not yet been determined. In the selection stage of the project competition, various aspects such as visionary power, conceptual capacity, demonstrable vision regarding educational buildings and (successful) participation in design competitions like this ideas competition will play a role. All entrants in the ideas competition will be informed about the project competition. The winners are emphatically invited to take part in the project competition.
