Discussing the campus of the future, in Portugal

by Alexandra den Heijer

Today I was a guest of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon’s University of Technology. I gave a lecture in the morning, for hand-out: see DOWNLOADS (for more info: see conference website).

After lunch I spent 3 hours with 5 PhD students on related subjects, see photo below.

five PhD students, two professors and (possibly) one student of the future - sharing ideas and space at IST in Lisbon, Portugal

It was good to inspire each other with new ideas – this would not have worked so well without meeting each other in person – that is one of my propositions about the campus. And that is also a lesson for the campus of the future.

    I fully agree that meeting people adds to education and Alexandra has inspired my research into educational facilities. Hopefully we can invite Alexandra to visit us at the Construction Innovation Lab at the Dublin Institute of Technology later in 2014. Our own example of the living campus is currently under construction at the DIT Grangegorman campus in Dublin City
