    Abstract

    This paper reflects on the introduction of Bridge Design as a topic for education and research at the faculty of Architecture since 2013. Introducing Bridge Design as a topic at University responds to the growing involvement of architects, landscape designers and urban designers in the current practice. Until 2013 education or research in Bridge Design was lacking at Delft University of Technology, as is the case for many of its counterparts. Two educational courses are discussed, four graduation projects, two research projects and one student competition.
