Together with the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology, the Jaap Bakema Study centre has launched the new PhD programme 'Architecture and Democracy'. The programme seeks to investigate how over the course of the 20th century, architecture and urban planning have played a role in representing, embodying and enabling democracy.
The programme is geared to expand the PhD-portfolio of the Department of Architecture of TU Delft, and to connect with the programme of the Jaap Bakema Study Centre and the State Archive of Dutch Architecture and Urban Planning at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Read the Call for PhD Proposals.
In April 2019, an International PhD Colloquium will be organised with the same theme, in order to bring PhD students from various universities together to exchange knowledge and experience related to the theme of 'Architecture and Democracy'. The Jaap Bakema Study Centre invites interested PhD students to send a proposal for a presentation at the colloquium.
