Piet is speaking at
TU Delft Education Spaces Configurator (TUDESC) is helping the University put teaching and learning practice at the heart of new build and refurbishment projects. The interactive tool was developed to support university staff and contractors by facilitating communication across the different professional disciplines and helping avoid common and persistent errors relating to issues such as readability, sightlines, seating capacity and accessibility. Piet Van der Zanden will introduce the ‘Cookbook’ tool, which is available for others to use.
