Ir. Arch. Linsy Raaffels (°1993), is a PhD researcher at the Architectural Engineering Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). She obtained her degree as Master of Science in Architectural Engineering in 2016 and started in January 2017 on a research project 'Doctiris' supported by Innoviris on 'Architects’ houses in Brussels. Strategies for valorization' in collaboration with B. Van der Wee Architects and under the supervision of prof. dr. Inge Bertels (VUB) and prof. dr. Stephanie Van de Voorde (VUB). Through this project she will identify the characteristics and qualities of architects' houses in the Brussels Capital Region and develop qualitative restoration and renovation strategies. In addition, best practices, new restoration techniques and recommendations will be put forward for experts as well as for owners and other stakeholders. Between October and December 2016, she was appointed as a researcher within the IRP-project: ‘Building Brussels’. This project has a particular interest in the construction sector of the Brussels' Canal Zone throughout the 19th and 20th century.
