Tillman_Klein

Professor Tillmann Klein (09-05-1967 — † 17-06-2023) was lead instructor responsible for several online courses on circularity and sustainability in architecture and the build industry.

Tillmann Klein studied architecture at RWTH Aachen, Germany. He worked in several architecture offices, later focussing on the construction of metal and glass facades and glass roofs. Simultaneously he attended the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, Klasse Baukunst. He was a co-founder of the architecture office rheinflügel baukunst with a focus on art-related projects. In 2005, he was awarded the art prize of North Rhine-Westphalia for young artists.

From September 2005 until 2018 Klein headed the Facade Research Group at the TU Delft, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, and from 2008 until 2016 he was director of the façade consulting office Imagine Envelope b.v. in The Hague. Tillmann Klein organised the international façade conference series ´The Future Envelope´ at TU Delft and was editor in chief of the scientific open access ´Journal of Façade Design and Engineering´. He also established the Circular Built Environment Hub – a cross-departmental, dedicated community teaching and conducting research on circularity.

marcel-bilow

Marcel Bilow is a lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at Delft University of Technology, and the head of the Bucky Lab. He has been teaching building construction and product design for more than 20 years. His hands-on approach in research and education, especially within the fields of facades, experimental prototyping and production techniques, makes him the go-to expert for connections, products, and the use of materials.

Besides his academic activities, he ran an office for facade engineering and is the co-author of more than 15 books.

Degrees Dr.-Ing., Building Technology, Delft University of Technology BSc, Architecture, University of Applied Science Detmold

thaleia

Thaleia Konstantinou is associate professor at the Chair Building Product Innovation, TU Delft. She has studied Architecture and Environmental Design and Engineering. In September 2014, she concluded her PhD research at the Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Within the scope of her research, Thaleia Konstantinou developed a tool to support the decision making of energy upgrade strategies.

Currently, her research and education-related activities focus on energy efficiency, circularity, façade design and building products, working on an integrated approach for the decarbonisation of the built environment. Some projects that she actively participates in are the research project "2ndSkin: zero-energy refurbishment module" and "Beyond the Current: user preference tested design solutions for energy-efficient housing renovation".

Degrees PhD, Building Technology - Energy efficient Design, Delft University of Technology MSc, Environmental Design and Engineering, University College London

olga

Olga Ioannou is assistant professor at the Chair Building Product Innovation at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft. Her expertise lies in architectural education and knowledge creation within the extended communities of knowledge.

Olga currently focuses on circular economy and, in particular, on circularity's role in place-making from a systems perspective and the way it reorganises both the educational experience as well as the architectural design practice.
