Expertise

As a master of science in Architectural Engineering, Stijn Brancart conducts research in the field of lightweight and transformable structures. In his Ph.D research (funded by the Flemish Agency for Innovation through Science and Technology - IWT) Stijn explores the use of flexible, bending-active elements for the development of deployable and rapidly assembled structures. The insights of his work will contribute to the design and construction of temporary architectural structures that can be assembled and disassembled very quickly with a high potential for reuse and thus minimum amount of waste.

During his studies, Stijn Brancart was educated in both the technical and designerly aspects of Architectural Engineering, contributing to a multidisciplinary insight in building technology, material science and structural design as well as architectural theory, design and the socio-cultural aspects of architecture and construction. In his master dissertation Stijn developed a theoretical framework based on the concept of Planning for change, therein exploring a spatial planning methodology that incorporates urban processes and urban change.
