About 

My name is Rik van Ginkel, a graduate architect from the Netherlands, having recently relocated to Sydney, Australia. I began my career in architecture at the University of Technology Eindhoven in 2010, during which – in my second year - I completed the minor ‘Archineering’ at the University of Technology Delft. After completing the Bachelor of Architecture, Urbanism and Building Technology, I decided to put my previously acquired knowledge to the test by becoming an intern at the Netherlands’ renowned architecture rm, Diederendirrix. Through this internship I obtained more practical experience and, as a consequence, a more profound understanding of architecture necessary to start my Master of Architecture, Building and Planning in Eindhoven. During the first semester I took part in an exchange program with the University of Sydney, acknowledging the importance of international collaboration. In Sydney, I began unfolding my plans to becoming an international architect, submerging myself in the culture, lifestyle and architecture of Australia. After returning to the Netherlands, I continued to pursue inter-university experience by attending the Summer Academy at the University of Technology Dortmund. In July 2016 I successfully completed my graduation project by designing an architecture school for the Academy of Architecture Mendrisio, thus receiving the title of Master of Science in Architecture.

Alongside my architectural studies, I also worked as a student assistant (tutor) for the first year projects of the architecture faculty at the University of Technology Eindhoven. In addition to this, I was nominated for best project in 2015 and received a honourable mention in a rendering competition judged by A2 Studio.
