The XXL Workshop is an elective course held at the Faculty of Architecture of Delft University of Technology. It is concerned with the design, computation, engineering, and production of a horizontal large span building structure. This design process is done as a collaborative digital design in a multidisciplinary group of students in which each student has his/her own different responsibility. The collaborative digital design requires an integrated 3D approach based on BIM (Building Information Modeling) principles, performance analysis, and file to factory processes.

Coordination: Bige Tuncer / Michela Turrin. Instructors: Architectural Design: K. Oosterhuis; H.H. Bier; ir. Jelle Feringa. Structural Design: J. Paul; ir. A. Borgart. Cladding and Construction: ir. T. Klein. Digital and Computational Design: Arch. M. Turrin; ir. S. Mulders, ir. P. Nourian. Sustainable Design: A. van Timmeren; M. Tenpierik; Ing. A.K. Lassen; ir.G.Mangone. Adaptive Building Systems: P. Teuffel; Dipl.Ing. F. Heinzelmann. Invited Reviewers: B. Burgers (De Kuip), F. Werner (KCAP), S. Wilbrenninck (BAM), A. Habraken (Arup), B.Wubben (dS+V, Rotterdam).
