Contact details and research profile

Tilke Devriese (°1989) obtained her degree in 2012 as Master of science: Architecture at Ghent University. She collaborated on a research project by Labo A (Ghent University) and gained experience as architect. After that, she worked for seven years as stability engineer in an office with strong focus on architectural quality. She obtained credits for several courses from the programme for civil engineering.

In 2020 Ghent University granted her an assistant position at the department of Architecture and Urban Planning. Her PhD-research is situated in building culture and starts from the thesis that involved engineers in their work as well go through a design process. She studies the mechanisms with which these different design processes get intertwined, based on archival material from the offices, focusing on the architect and the structural engineer.
