  • Marjolein van Eig

    Architect Marjolein van Eig ontwerpt en schrijft over architectuur. In 2014 startte zij haar eigen BureauVanEig. In dat jaar won ze de Abe Bonnemaprijs voor het project Koepel op de Overplaats in Heemstede. Ook won ze de opdracht voor een nieuw brugwachtershuisje, een icoon, in het centrum van Haarlem.

    Haar werk is herkenbaar: “Ik vind het belangrijk dat je de omgeving waarin je leeft begrijpt. Dat zorgt voor rust en geborgenheid. Daarom werk ik met archetypes, daarmee bouw ik verder op het bestaande. De projecten voegen zich op een subtiele manier in hun context, dat vind ik spannend. Ze vallen op door hun typische vorm, zorgvuldige detaillering en solide materialen.”

    Marjolein van Eig schrijft ook over architectuur, onder anderen  voor Archined en HP/DeTijd.  Ze schreef het boek ‘Koppen’ over kopgevels in de woningbouw in de afgelopen 125 jaar. Voor het vakblad de Architect maakt ze maandelijks een rubriek over het detail, waarin ze schrijft over de grootsheid van schijnbaar kleine dingen.
