Collaborate with T?F

We would like to invite all international institutions and thinkers, which share the Why Factory’s craving for bringing architecture and urbanism further, to engage the practice of scenario making and visionary imaginations to change the course of history on the city of the future. In the coming year, the Why Factory wants to connect to other schools and individuals to create a network on visionary cities and urban futures: The Why Club.

From it’s home base at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft, The Why Factory collaborates with an international network of universities and institutions through research projects, workshops, design studios, exhibitions and publications. These global collaborations are at the heart of the work of The Why Factory.

In the past, The Why Factory has collaborated with the Aedes Network Campus Berlin, Berlage Institute, International forum for Urbanism IfoU, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University, JUT foundation for arts and architecture and Museum of Tomorrow, Taipei, Arup engineers, ABT Delft, TNO, Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, Tamkang Unversity Graduate Institute of Architecture, Taipei, Tunghai University Graduate Institure of Architecture, Yonsei University, Seoul, Contemporary Museum of Art, Seoul, HamburgMuseum, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, Exhibition Centre for Arts and Architecture STROOM Den Haag, LTO Noord, European Forum for Architecture Policies, Lego, Tarumanagara University, Jakarta and many more.

In the coming years, we want to extend this network further. We are planning to manifest a number of collaborations with other schools of architecture, with visiting studios, debates, guest reviews and collective publications.
