CV KIM

Kim Verhoeven M.arch. [1978.NL]

Graduated with honors as an architect at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam. I started my own design studio, right at a moment in which our environment is changing rapidly. We call it a crisis, but it forces us to recognize that there is a growing shortage of raw materials while the human population on earth is still increasing. In my opinion recognizing and analyzing this everyday reality is a very interesting experience, as I seek the beauty and essence of these changes.
I approach every design project as part of a greater whole, part of an existing physical and social context . ‘How can architecture contribute to the future, while our vision for the future is continuously changing?’. The act of creation fascinates me deeply: adding material in some place and taking it away from another (maybe its origin). I’m changing form, function and location of materials depending on the needs and context, in order to create something new which can be experienced and explored.
