More songs about buildings and sustainablilty

I crashed a TU Delft field trip this week and it was leuk! We took a boat to the RDM Campus south of Rotterdam. RDM stands for Research, Design, and Manufacturing. They got a boatload of cash from the European Commission to turn an old shipyard into a sweet collaboration between students and businesses. They apparently share the free facilities and machinery… The students get work placements and the businesses get to benefit from the students’ ‘research’, apparently.

Then we toured a sustainable house prototype and heard from the architects who designed it. Most totally radical! Architects are super smart, but sustainable system architects are now officially the smartest people I have ever met. WHOA.
