Guest lecture: Anne Holtrop


Anne Holtrop (1977) graduated in 2005 from the Academie van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam with a cum laude degree in architecture and in 2009 started his own studio. Today his office is based in Muharraq (Bahrain) and Amsterdam (The Netherlands). His work ranges from models to temporary spaces and buildings. In 2015 his first two major buildings, Museum Fort Vechten and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain, were completed. He was course director of the Studio for Immediate Spaces master at the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam from 2012 to 2016, and was editor of the architectural journal Oase from 2005 to 2013. For his practice he has been awarded several grants from the Mondrian Fund, as well as receiving the Charlotte Kohler Prize for Architecture from the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds in 2007. 
 
"In my work I start with forms or material gestures that often come from outside the realm of architecture, in the conviction that things can always be re-examined and reinterpreted, and could in turn also be seen as architecture. The way someone can see a butterfly or a lake in the ink blots of a Rorschach test. I try to look freely at material gestures and forms and let them perform as architecture. In this way, architecture emerges by imagining a next step to the previous steps that have been taken, in an attempt to let the work remain interpretable, in much the same way it originated."
