Architecture & Public Building

  • Prof. ir. Michiel Riedijk
    Room: 01.Oost.430

    Michiel Riedijk studied architecture at the TU Delft from 1983 until 1989. He worked with Julliette Bekkering from 1989 until 1991. In 1992 he founded Neutelings Riedijk Architects with Willem Jan Neutelings. In September 2007 Michiel was appointed as The Chair of Architectural Composition and Public Building at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. Michiel regularly lectures at universities, conferences and cultural institutions worldwide. He taught at the TU Eindhoven, the Academies of Architecture in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Maastricht, and the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam. In 2002, he was a guest professor at the RWTH Aachen. Neutelings Riedijk Architects' work partakes of sculptural, often anthropomorphic qualities and playfulness of form while maintaining a clear rationality in program and context. Key projects include the Museum Aan de Stroom or MAS in Antwerp, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, Culturehouse Rozet in Arnhem, and Culturehouse Eemhuis in Amersfoort. The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has been widely published and exhibitioned, and has won a variety of international awards and nominations.

    Room: 01.Oost.430

    Micha de Haas teaches MSc. 1 design studios of BC&T. He studied both at the Bezalel Art and Design Academy in Jerusalem and the TU Delft. As a design approach he advocates a combination of the poetic and the intuitive with a fascination for the building process itself. Art and technology, poetry and building-law, economy and social evolvement should be naturally interwoven in an overall spatial architectural concept. Since starting his own practice in Amsterdam in 1997, Micha has won several architectural awards and competitions and his work has been extensively published in the Netherlands and internationally. Since 2008 with Angie Abbink he runs the office Abbink X De Haas Architectures.
