How Dutch architecture is changing with a new generation of graduates
With Dutch architecture’s recent boom, its residents are now finding themselves on the outside looking in, and one of the new graduates is a professor of architecture.
He has a Ph.
D. in architecture from the University of Amsterdam, but it’s his passion for architecture that has him looking to the future.
“When I was a student at the University, I loved architecture, but when I was out and about I didn’t really like it,” he told ESPNCricInfo.
“It was a little bit of a struggle, because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to architecture school or not.”
Nowadays, he is an associate professor of architectural design at the university and a member of the faculty at the prestigious NU Faculty of Architecture.
His first major assignment is on the redesign of the Amsterdam’s new city hall.
“In a world that is constantly being shaped, there is always a need for a new way to look at a city,” he said.
“I’m really looking to create a new architecture that is very connected to the city and that is also connected to its people.”
The architect has already designed the new city center of the Netherlands, the Grand Place, which will house the city’s tallest building, the city hall, and the first two skyscrapers in the country.
In the future, he hopes to create buildings that are connected to other buildings, like a library, a museum, or a church.
“It is going to be really interesting to see how architecture and urban planning is changing in the future,” he added.
“If architecture is going up, then I’m sure that architecture will become part of our daily lives.”
In addition to designing the Grand Building, the architect also created a new design for the Amsterdam city hall’s first skyscraper, the “Hobie.”
“The Hobie is a very modern architecture, a building with a lot of space, a very wide, a lot to be desired,” he explained.
“And it is connected to a lot other buildings in the city, a library and the city center.
It is really a very interesting building, and I think the city has to be aware of the way architecture is evolving.”
His new design is also a reminder that he wants to preserve the old, which is why he created the Hobie and the Grand Plaza as part of the cityscape.
He has also created three more pieces of architecture, which were designed by the same architect.
The first is the “Ville de l’Orient,” which is an addition to the Old Town, and which was completed in 2017.
The second is a “Café de la Vie” in the center of Old Town that was designed by another master of architecture named Jean-Jacques Dufresne.
The third is the city plaza, which was designed in collaboration with a different architect named Marcel Kerkhof.
And then there is the grand plaza in the centre of Old City, which also was designed and completed in 2019.
With these pieces, he also created the “Nuit de la Cité” and “Cabaret,” which are now part of Nuit de La Cité.
All three of these structures are designed to connect to other architectural buildings and have their own distinctive design.
“They are the result of a collaboration between Dufreich and Kerkhoff, Dufrenheinz and Kermers,” he continued.
As for his future projects, the future looks bright for him, as he is also working on another project that has the potential to change the way we see architecture.
For his part, Duhrenheind said that the architect is currently planning on developing his own new project.
This project is a mix of architecture and design that combines traditional design elements with modern design elements.
He is also considering the use of sustainable materials.
Duhrenwein is also looking to work with a local architecture studio.
While his designs may be new, Dohrenheing is already looking to incorporate new ideas into his work.
On top of that, he plans to use his design experience to work on a new project in which he aims to design a new cityscape for the Netherlands.
I am really looking for a way to work in the Netherlands and make something new out of the old,” he says.
