Abstract

The post-fact era – in which emotions trump evidence, while trust in institutions, expertise and mainstream media is declining – is putting our information ecosystem under strain. At a time when information is increasingly being manipulated for ideological and economic purposes, public access to source of trustworthy general-interest knowledge – such as national online encyclopaedias – can help boost our cognitive resilience. Basic, reliable background information about history, culture, society and politics is an essential part of our societies' complex knowledge ecosystem, and an important tool for any citizen searching for knowledge, facts and figures

Abstract

De explosieve toename van het verzamelen van data en van de verwerkingscapaciteit van deze data in een gedigitaliseerde wereld dwingt bedrijven en overheden ertoe een strategie te ontwikkelen om verantwoord met deze ‘disruptie’ om te gaan. Deze noodzaak spruit voort uit vier belangrijke problemen: – de bezorgdheid van consumenten en overheden over het gebruik van persoonsgegevens;– de impact en de uitdagingen van automatisering en robotisering;– het gevaar van onethisch gebruik van de nieuwe technologieën;– het gevaar van toenemende ongelijkheid . Persoonsgegevens maken zowat drie kwart uit van alle digitaal verzamelde en verwerkte data. Dit percentage neemt toe naargelang bedrijven er meer en meer gebruik van willen maken om hun productaanbod te personaliseren op basis van de voorkeuren en gewoontes van hun klanten, om te innoveren en om nieuwe markten te veroveren .

Abstract

Barriers to access, education and skills, as well as ingrained socio-cultural biases, are driving a digital gender divide that is holding back women’s participation in the digital economy, according to a new OECD report. Bridging the Digital Gender Divide: Include, Upskill, Innovate says women are not currently empowered to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the digital transformation. While G20 economies have taken important actions to narrow gender gaps in general, more needs to be done to increase the participation of women and girls in the digital economy so that they too can contribute to and benefit from the digital transformation that is under way.

Abstract

Wood is suitable for use in multistorey building construction with barely any restrictions. This is new and requires creative rethinking of tried and tested practices in wood construction: classical categories can be replaced by mixed construction methods as necessary within a project, which yields completely new possibilities in designing wood structures. The Manual provides architects, engineers and wood specialists with the essential expertise on the new systematics and construction methodology, from the design to prefabrication to the implementation on site. It lays the grounds for mutual understanding among everyone involved in the project, to facilitate the necessary cooperation in the integral planning and construction process.

Abstract

Material in architecture is generally associated with its individual and distinctive main characteristic, a reduced description which often undermines the ambiguity and true meaning of materiality. Material is often employed based on or with fundamental focus on expressing this preconceived identity, leaving space and material devaluated of their opportunities and possibilities. This publication examines materials in architecture through the eyes of the architects themselves. Interviews with 33 practices from around the world – including OFIS arhitekti, UNStudio, Casanova + Hernandez, and CEBRA –shed light on current paradigm shifts in brick and tile, wood, and glass.

Abstract

Laugier summarized the origin of architecture with a tree structure and Semper identified in the woven leaves of a Caribbean hut’s enclosure one of the essential elements of inhabitation. Plants have been part of architecture from its very origin and they are to be found in several building traditions that are now being incorporated into contemporary practice to profit from their thermal qualities, their availability and their low environmental footprint. The vernacular lessons of Swedish stugas and Asturian teitos have common principles with the green roofs such as those at the California Academy of Sciences, by Renzo Piano, which allow to replace air-conditioning by natural ventilation to a great extent; further, the enclosures of woven reed and cane of Iraqi mudhifs or Peruvian quinchas have evolved into more sophisticated facades of pressed straw or algae, as in the SolarLeaf project in Hamburg (Germany), by Arup; finally, the South Asian tradition of hanging bridges made out of aerial roots has been up-dated by Baubotanik, the German research group which designs load-bearing structures with living trees. From vernacular tradition to contemporary innovation, this book explores the theoretical and technical implications of the role played by plants in the configuration of inhabited space.

Abstract

Bestuurders, ook de lokale, kunnen digitalisering niet afremmen, noch negeren, daarvoor is de impact simpelweg te groot. Richtingloos stimuleren is ook niet verstandig. De overheid dient het algemeen belang en daarom moeten bestuurders dit proces vanuit publieke waarden (van efficiëntie tot privacy en controle over technologie) vormgeven en digitalisering transformeren. De inzichten van dit essay zijn terug te voeren op vijf cruciale processen binnen wat men in deze context het ‘innovatieve technologiespel’ noemt: waarderen, experimenteren, kansen grijpen, risico’s verzachten, samen werken en leren. Vanuit deze processen destilleerden de auteurs 10 perspectieven die het handelen van lokale bestuurders in deze materie richting kunnen geven
