“We wanted to map the ecosystem that our teaching programme was embedded in as well as the expertise of external stakeholders so as to create a hub of information that may, in time, grow to become an important part of our sustainable research and practice”, says associate professor Thomas Hilberth of The Aarhus School of Architecture.
In time the map could evolve to become interactive, letting everyone contribute and thereby gaining in relevance and quality every time someone enters data into it.
The mission of BASP, as it is stated in the new publication, is to document, encourage and strengthen the collaboration and interaction between academia, practice and a broad swath of stakeholders to work towards a more sustainable future.
“Stage 2 is to develop tools to help us evaluate and analyse, ongoing as well as future potentials for collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders”, says research assistant Kevin Kuriakose of The Aarhus School of Architecture.
And so, the goal of the BASP project may be one step closer: Finding a way to evaluate collaborations in terms of quality and impact on the sustainable agenda.
