Freddie got it all !

Its exams period and our graduates finishes their graduation project. Thats actually the last time they have to present and share what they have done the last year to friends family and of course to the critical group of docent who supported the students within this busy period.

This is usually not the place to show these projects, but when a student finishes a project that continues a project that was already started in the bucky lab within their first semester its worth mentioning here.

Today Freddie Koch presented her graduation project, in which she continued the recycling of plastic waste. Back then she made a sunshade entirely out of recycled plastic for schools together with her teammates Layla van Ellen and Nico Schouten. Within her graduation project she developed a material / recycling bank joined by a plastic recycling factory in Indonesia / Bandung. The entire building structure is made out of bamboo and the outer facade cladding made out of recycled plastic.

Next to a very clear developed cycle of the material flow and the wonderful design she also build scale and full scale models.

We may get some more pictures later but here already a few impressions about her great day today ...which she finished with a 10 !

Congratulations for this wonderful project and all the best for the future. And of course congratulations also to all the other students who finished the last days.

Her project was supervised by Mo Smit, Paddy Tomesen and Jan Jongert within the graduation studio Intecture of Architectural Engineering.
