by Annika Sutter 12 Dec 2016
A Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) was handed over on the afternoon of Friday the 9th December by Dr. Religiana Hendarti of Binus University to A/Prof. Kurt Seemann, Director of Centre for Design Innovation (CDI), on behalf of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research and Development, Prof. Aleks Subic.
The memorandum outlines the five-year research collaboration between the two universities and focuses on CDI’s Humanitarian Habitat and Design program which looks at the design of suitable, temporary shelters and facilities for after disaster. In particular, the relationship centres on flood disasters in Jakarta, Indonesia.
We look forward to our ongoing relationship with Binus University, including initial fieldwork, a joint design workshop and exhibition, joint research papers and a student exchange program.
