About 

I am an architect & researcher currently working at One Architecture in Amsterdam in close collaboration with principal Matthijs Bouw on the Rebuild By Design competition in New York. Our team is headed by the Bjarke Ingels Group and we are researching resiliency issues in relation to growth, density and (social) infrastructures. At One I am currently also working on the German ‘Baukulturatlas’ for 2050 in collaboration with Raumtaktik. Another project I was involved in at One was Amsterdam Metropolitan Solutions - a proposal for a Center for Urban Tech Acceleration together with OMA-AMO, THNK and others.

July 2013 I submitted a (shortlisted!) proposal for Europan 12 - The Adaptable City together with graphic designer Barbara Iwanicka and a proposal for the 2013 TENT London exhibition. My (collaborative) work has thus far been exhibited in Rotterdam, Eindhoven, the UK and Poland.

From 2011 until early 2013 I was working at .FABRIC as a designer-researcher on mapping regional strategies, new spatial policy for the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, design research ( for example the 5th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam), urban planning, large-scale (social) housing proposals, a private residence and teaching the occasional workshop at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture among other things.

After graduating from Studio Border Conditions at the TU Delft I set up FRICTIEStudio to work on architectural designs and spatial research; from competitions to unsolicited proposals, commissions and theory.

After obtaining my  Bachelor of the Built Environment, BBE, I landed an internship and subsequent employment at 2012Architecten (now called Superuse Studios) in Rotterdam where I worked on a diverse range of projects but focused mostly on the  WORM@VOC project. After its realization, I continued my education at the Technische Universiteit in Delft to obtain a master’s degree in the field of Architecture. While studying I took the opportunity to live and work in New York and was an intern  for half a year at Archi-Tectonics, the office of Winka Dubbeldam. After returning to Holland I started my graduation in the Studio Border Conditions, location Kyiv | Ukraine, with tutors Marc Schoonderbeek, Oscar Rommens and Raviv Ganchrow. The collaborative group research of the studio was not only published in the Architecture Annual, the yearbook of the Faculty of Architecture, but was also part of the 4th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam.

FRICTIEStudio, Amsterdam, NL, architect, owner

FRICTIEStudio was established in 2010 shortly after graduation from the highly acclaimed Studio Border Conditions at the TU Delft and has since then taken on a wide range of projects; from small potential interventions in public space to research into self-sufficient prefab housing, a possible publication on different aspects of self-built structures and different competitions and commissions. The work of FRICTIEStudio has thus far been exhibited in Rotterdam, Eindhoven, the UK and Poland, with two small ongoing projects in Poland and The Hague while the possibility of an artistic research project in São Paulo is being investigated at the moment.

Archi-Tectonics, New York, NY, US, intern

At Archi-Tectonics I was working on various competitions; a museum, hotel, high-rise and (social) housing next to the renovation of a townhouse and the DD-phase of a hotel. I made renderings, form and conceptual studies, physical models and technical drawings.

2012Architects, Rotterdam, intern, designer/builder

At 2012Architects (currently Superuse Studios) in Rotterdam I worked on a diverse range of projects but focussed mostly on the WORM@VOC-project where WORM (the Rotterdam Institute for Avant-Gardist Recreation) found shelter in a 17th century monument in Delfshaven, Rotterdam. For this project I made all the necessary technical drawings for permits and construction, including non-standard high-end detailing and shop drawings (which was quite challenging for this Dutch national monument) At 2012Architects I've learned what the real implications are for a sustainable design attitude based on reuse and recycling and what it means to practice what you preach as an architect since we were also the construction workers of the projects ourselves using reclaimed materials wherever possible.

Education 

Delft University of Technology, Delft, NL, Masters, Architecture

Having studied at the TU in Delft enabled me to experience a wide variety of approaches and opinions concerning the state of architecture today; from neo-Modernist straightforwardness to hyperrational Superdutch foamcutter architecture, Digitalism and intense Situationist experimentations.

Jan 2005 - Jan 2010
 

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Amsterdam, NL, Bachelors, Architecture

At the HvA I learned the basics of architecture and engineering including construction and energy calculations and detailing.
