1. Verhoeckx, Josien (author). Electroluminescence, a user-oriented material driven design.

Degree: 2018, Delft University of Technology

TThis project started out as a quest to find a meaningful application for the electroluminescent material: a phenomenom where a plane of phosphor is lit up when an alternating current is run through it. The material has several unique properties which make it perfect for application on smart wearables:It emits light, it is paper thin, it is flexible, it allows for an almost unlimited form freedom and lastly, it can be printed on a lot of different materials, including fabric. These properties can not be found in other forms of light, which gives the electroluminescent material competitive advantages in the field of smart clothing. One aspect of life often forgotten is physical activity. In busy periods, it is hard for people to maintain a rhythm. Yet it is this rhythm that can help with maintaining a healthy physical lifestyle. What if our clothing would help us remain active? Not by demanding even more of us, but just by keeping us up to date with ourselves, helping us gain awareness on our movements and connecting us again with our bodies. Well, meet Awareable.This smart system makes the user aware of their daily physical activity. The progress of a daily set goal is reflected on their wearable; the further the progress, the more electroluminescent sections will light up and the more appealing the garment becomes. This constant reflection enhances awareness which eventually leads to the wanted behaviour change of being more active.

2. Thijssen, Fieke (author). Design for Participation: A circular centre in de BUCH.

Degree: 2020, Delft University of Technology

Over the past decades, a culture that rapidly produces, consumes and discards earthly resources is established. The extraction and processing of these resources lead to an increasing amount of greenhouse gas emissions which are warming the planet day by day. In 2016 the European Union signed the Paris-agreement. This agreement aims to avoid this dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to 1.5°C (EU, 2016). To accomplish, the Dutch government (Rijksoverheid), introduced the Klimaatakkoord. Among other things, the Klimaatakkord acknowledges the transition to a circular economy as an essential strategy to accomplish the EU goals. By 2050, the Netherlands aims to be a circular economy where products and materials are reused in endless loops. This thesis focuses on the disposal of bulky waste, such as household goods or private construction materials. These type of products are usually discarded at the municipal recycling facility. The assignment explores on behalf of de BUCH (Bergen, Uitgeest, Castricum, Heiloo) municipalities alternatives for bulky waste disposal. The project takes off at the idea of a circular centre; a concept developed by Rijkswaterstaat. Circular centres are municipal recycling facilities, where not only waste is processed but also various recycling alternatives are offered. The role of the residents living in de BUCH area is identified as key-enabler in the transition towards a local circular economy. The plans for a circular centre in de BUCH also describes the active involvement and contributions of residents as an essential success factor. Currently, only a limited amount of people is actively engaged in circular activities. To make the circular centre a broadly supported success, it requires a different attitude and behaviour towards used materials for many residents. This project investigates how resident participation in circular initiatives can be encouraged in various ways. Literature on behavioural change has been consulted and models developed by Fogg (2009), Tromp (2013) and van Lieren (2018) were practised. The current attitude and the behaviour of residents regarding product disposal was obtained through interviews and a questionnaire. New roles for the residents has been established according to this data. The roles were held against Fischer’s model for richer ecologies of participation (2011). The obtained knowledge was translated into concepts and discussed with residents. A research-through-design approach was practised to identify barriers for participation and apply universal behavioural strategies in more tangible ways. These concepts were assessed by the residents using video prototypes. The following interviews provided insight into the barriers for participation and the possible strategies that could lower them. Based on these insights and insights from earlier phases, a toolkit has been developed which helps the municipality to design initiatives together with its residents. The toolkit aims to design interventions that overcome the barriers for participation and… Advisors/Committee Members: Mulder, I.J. (mentor), Taminiau, F.P.A.M.
