The design principles for the area are laid down in an urban development plan (document in Dutch). This is a drawing with components such as building plots, roads, water, greenery and logistic routes. In addition, good and safe accessibility is important for the (future) thousands of students, teachers and employees. Accessibility by public transport, by bicycle and by car. With, naturally, sufficient bicycle racks and parking places.
All these aspects are taken into account when colouring the area ‘canvas’. TU Delft is collaborating in this with the municipality of Delft and the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam Den Haag (MRDH).
TU Delft aims to make its campus more sustainable, with the objective of a CO2-neutral and circular campus by 2030. The Kluyver area is pre-eminently the place where sustainability can take shape at the design table. For instance, construction with used materials, insulation based on natural materials, energy-neutral buildings, energy-efficient installations… The terrain will be sustainably designed as well. For example, with innovative paving or new inventions that scientists would like to test on campus. Think of a practical assignment for water storage, soil research or a wear and tear test with asphalt.
