As founder and architect of FRICTIEStudio, I consider myself a researching designer and a designing researcher. Originally I am trained - at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, HvA (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) and Technische Universiteit Delft, TU Delft - in the architectural design of the physical objects that shape our built environment. During my final thesis in Delft however, my focus shifted more towards researching the systems behind the physical manifestations; analysing the processes and force fields that might eventually lead to physical objects. For me, this duality between process and physical manifestation is the most fascinating aspect of current architectural practice. It is this mentality that guided me through the years and has brought me to where I am today.
