DASH - Delft Architectural Studies on Housing

DASH (Delft Architectural Studies on Housing) is a thematic journal that is wholly devoted to residential design. IInquiry into historical and contemporary projects and conditions is the central focus of DASH. New types of housing but also existing models and changing trends will be thoroughly charted and examined. The target is the future: with thought-provoking analyses, DASH aims to give new impetus to innovative housing design.

Over the past few centuries, the Netherlands has built up a housing tradition that is renowned throughout the world. With its periodical DASH, the Chair of Architecture and Dwelling of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) intends to bring the richness of housing design back on centre stage. That goal ties in with the important role that TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture has already played in Dutch housing for decades.

DASH aims to occupy a central position in the academic community as well as among designing and commissioning parties. For clients, architects and academics, DASH is a tool for tackling the contemporary housing assignment in an innovative manner and for developing and disseminating new information on housing design.

> Published twice a year
> each edition of DASH is devoted to a fundamental theme in contemporary housing development, with an introductory essay by the editor or guest editor responsible, followed by extensive, uniformly presented plan documentation of relevant projects from the present as well as the past.
> Four to six articles about specific aspects of the theme in which historical hindsight and critical reflection on current development practices are key, and a bibliography that adds an interdisciplinary dimension to the specific theme.
>DASH aims to make an international contribution to housing design from a Dutch perspective.

Construction is responsible for about 20 per cent of total carbon dioxide emissions and 30 per cent of energy demand; this ranks it alongside the chemical and transport industries among the biggest polluters. Sustainability is therefore one of the most significant issues for designers and architects, as well as a challenging field for innovation and research. DASH goes in search of the ideal eco house: from solar houses to Superuse, from Cradle-to- Cradle to support-infill systems and precise prefab-technology.
