The architectural research center LEONARDO DA VINCI (CRA-LDV or LDV research center) has been in existence since January 2009 within the framework of the Higher Institute of Architecture Victor Horta. It aims to develop a research dynamic specific to the ULB's Faculty of Architecture.Its structure and activities are set up to provide for its funding, to liberate and enhance individual initiatives, to publish and make visible research, and to participate in national and international networks.In addition to their teaching duties, many of its members participate actively in the professional life of an architect. One of the major strengths of the LDV research center is the combination of members with an increased knowledge of research at ULB and abroad, with professors who are actively involved.The Leonardo da Vinci Center is particularly positioned in an interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary dynamic between philosophy, psychology, art, architecture, landscape, sociology and town planning, thus enlarging the scope of research. This interdisciplinarity highlights a common and complex reflection that goes beyond the disciplinary frameworks in order to reinforce and acquire competences common to the associated disciplines.The Leonardo da Vinci Center undertakes transversal approaches along three main lines:- SPACE-TIME, the notion of the time and memory of the cities of the 21st century;- FORM, urban and architectural form in the face of the complexity of contemporary globalized cities;- NEW LANDSCAPES, the question of the city-nature in relation to the changes of urban landscapes in the face of globalization.These three axes of direction allow the LDV research center to broaden and rethink the fields of architecture, intermingling both theoretical and practical developments.The center also pursues close relations between the teaching of the project in architecture (MASTER 1 & MASTER 2) and research, through exchanges between students, PhD students, researchers, teachers and professionals in order to develop by-design research, a field not yet deepened within the university.
