Prior to Joining the Hanze University of Applied Science, Prof. Bennadji started his career as an Architect-Engineer (1992). His interest in existing buildings and the environment led him to undertake studies in both fields, so he completed a first Master’s in civilizations, followed by a second in Bio-climatic Architecture. Interested in the indoor environment, his civilizations Master’s thesis addressed the design of Medieval hospitals “Bimaristan”, and how their healthy indoor environment was achieved. His Bioclimatic Master covered the interaction of buildings with the external environment. His PhD thesis merged the 2 topics to question the “Culture” and the “Environment” influence in the architectural and urban creation.
His interest in Digital Media led him to explore the environmental digital tools in assessing buildings, addressing their energy efficiency, and developing decision-making tools as part of his Postdoctoral research project.
Amar kept feeding his research into his teaching where he took part in or led the development of many courses and occupied various positions from Assistant-Professor to Visiting-Professor prior to joining the Hanze University of Applied Science.
