Finding shared ambitions to design for change

Waldo Galle

Waldo Galle, Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Architectural Engineering, Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium. Dr Galle is a postdoctoral researcher for the European Regional Development Fund ERDF and the Flemish Institute for Technological Research VITO at the department of Architectural Engineering of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium. He holds a BSc and MSc in architectural engineering (Ghent University, 2009 and 2011) and a PhD in engineering (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 2016). Dr Galle's doctoral research focused on Scenario-based Life Cycle Costing, a financial evaluation method that analyzes a building's changing and uncertain specifications. This method empowers designers to promote and implement open and transformable building in an informed way. As a member of the TRANSFORM research team, chaired by Professor Niels De Temmerman, Dr Galle studies the financial and technical feasibility of designing for change.
