Graduation Projects

The Circular Water Stories research started in 2018/2019.

Most students of the CWS lab joined the analysis of the Traditional Water Systems, gaining input for their thesis project. Moreover, a few graduation projects conducted before 2018 are added, since they deal with the Circular Water Stories topic, as well. Different mentors from the LA section guide the students during their, one year lasting, thesis process. The student’s first mentor is always a member of the LA section, the second mentor derives from another discipline a.o. architect, urbanist, civil engineer, ecologist, preferably a member of the TU Delft.
