Architecture &the Built Environment
Since its foundation 110 years ago, the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment has built up a solid international reputation for training architects, urban planners and designers, as well as for its research portfolio and coaching of PhD candidates. With around 2600 students and 500 staff members, with around 230 FTEs devoted to academic positions, our faculty is one of the largest of Delft University of Technology and one of the most prestigious architecture and the built environment faculties globally. Traditionally, the faculty has prioritised high-quality training in design and research in the field of the built environment. Over 40 chairs cover a wide range of academic areas in design, process and technology, which together cover the entire field of the built environment. The faculty has a budget of around €38 million, of which approximately €7 million is sourced indirectly and from contracts with third parties.

The Department of Architecture provides high-quality educational programmes and conducts advanced academic research at an internationally competitive level of excellence in the field of architecture, with a strong focus on the social and cultural relevance of architectural knowledge and architectural design. The Department attracts an important number of international and Dutch students, academics and practitioners, thus holding a key position among the five departments that make up the Faculty of Architecture of the TU Delft.

The Architecture Theory Chair engages contemporary architecture theory as an expanded field. It investigates the transdisciplinary relations of architecture as a productive domain of culture, emphasising the connections between architectural knowledge, its discourse and practice, and its ’outside’. The Architecture Theory Chair conducts research on architecture as a material-discursive practice, linking the theoretical domains of the discipline to its design. Hence it holds a key position within the department.
