The meaning and impact of the concept of societal awareness on the design process of the interior and the role of the interior architect University of Antwerp
The general objective of this thesis
is a further elaboration of the current knowledge related to the hygrothermal
performance of interior insulation systems applied to single leaf masonry walls.
To that aim, this study is based on numerical as well as experimental research,
and specific attention is paid to both standard insulation systems and more
innovative (capillary active) ...
In many Western countries, the field of interior architecture is characterised by an on-going identity crisis. The confusion becomes apparent via the diverse nomenclature: interior architecture, interior design and interior decoration. Furthermore, the discipline was often (and still is) perceived as feminine and amateurish. Attempts to correct this image have significantly characterised the professionalisation of interior design since World ...

Interior rotation, mixing, and ages of a sample of Slowly Pulsating B stars from gravitymode asteroseismology KU Leuven
The study of stars forms the basis of many research fields in astrophysics, from exoplanet systems to the formation and evolution of galaxies. Stars are the chemical factories of the Universe, responsible for the production of heavier elements in their cores throughout their evolution. These resulting products of the internal nucleosynthesis are fed back to the interstellar medium through stellar winds, which chemically enrich the stellar ...
This thesis explores the existence and modus operandi of interwar elite networks and the ways they have (or tried to) influenced Belgian politics in the period between the two world wars. Traditionally, these two decades are associated with the breakthrough of democratization in the twenties, the success of the New Order movements in the thirties and political instability throughout the entire period. At the same time, researchers ...
Remaking the Public Space’ ERASMUS IP A27D130ACA06D722 / Lifelong Long Learning Intensive Programme KU Leuven
Throughout the world’s cities, public space is playing an ever more important role in the production of places. At the same time, it has become the core of contradicting demand. Commodification, commercialisation and even militarisation of public space are indicators of its declining quality as a factor of urban identity, culture and the freedom of communication. While neglect and deterioration are among the factors for this withering; the ...
