Share Knowledge Like Rivers Flow - 125 year "Practische Studie"
In honor of our 125th anniversary, we, Het Gezelschap "Practische Studie", have designed a symbolic artwork that will be an eye catcher on the façade of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. To realise this, we ask for your help!
Help us to realise a unique work of art.
Your donation is very welcome and you can also help by sharing this campaign with your network. We will work together to be able to realise this artwork and enrich our faculty and the TU Delft campus with this eye catcher!
With this artwork we want to give an international and impressive picture of our education. The artwork consists of an engraving, sized 11x5 meters, of all rivers in the world. The artwork bears the name 'Share Knowledge Like Rivers Flow', to symbolize the connection that the faculty has in the field of water all over the world.
Do you have any questions or suggestions about the artwork? Please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to the lustrum committee or call the board of het Gezelschap "Practische Studie".
The artwork will consist of a large cortensteel plate of 11 by 5 metres. All the big rivers will be carved out of this plate and LED lights will be placed behind the plate. The artwork will be placed on the façade next to the main entrance of the faculty. It will be visible from all over the Mekelpark and, especially at night, a true spectacle!
Het Gezelschap "Practische Studie" is the study association of students of Civil Engineering at the TU Delft. In 1886, members of the Delftsch Studenten Corps decided to give the members the opportunity to capacitate in the the civil- and building engineering sciences. This has been the base for Het Gezelschap ''Practische Studie'', the association that has been officially established in 1894.
In the past 125 years PS was committed to improvement of the education and widening the knowledge and skills of the future civil engineers. This Lustrum will be celebrated, by means of several activities and as the grand finale, the artwork on the faculty!
180 of the 1,800 members are active in the organization of the various activities via committees. 7 board members work full-time in order to guarantee continuity and to oversee overarching activities.
Het Gezelschap "Practische Studie" celebrates its 125th anniversary this year, together with all the Civil Engineering Students at the TU Delft.
