I am an independent interior-architect, researcher and thinker/writer, living and working in Rotterdam. I have studied Technical School Rotterdam and graduated in Interior- Architecture & Spatial Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy of Arts in Rotterdam. Later completed the Hora-Est program at Erasmus University Rotterdam preparing for my PhD. After over 25 years of working at architectural offices, as independent interior-architect, as well as a side-step in (digital) cartography/mapping I am now primarily occupied with the various theoretical/philosophical and technological aspects concerning technology within architecture/built environment. Connected to Council since 2009, moderate the Meet-Up Group IoT & Architecture in Rotterdam; initiated and organized the one-day conferences/MeetUp’s on ‘IoT & Built Environment’ on April 9 in Rotterdam since 2011. I am also member of AIOTI-WG13 on Smart Architecture.
