Lecturer Geer Koopmans and newly graduated Hand Karssenberg were keen to put these new ideas into practice. At that time they were inspired by the quest for effective sustainability, which still inspires us today.
“We put the perspective of users first now and in the future.”
Together with them we focus on: Durable quality reflecting the wishes of the time, the soul of the place with distinctive character in which people continue to want to invest, stratification multiple and diverse use for a fair and inclusive city, public quality where the public space is a place for interaction and the plinths are the leitmotif in the surroundings, ownership of the people, entrepreneurs and users of the place.
We do this together with initiators, residents, entrepreneurs, owners, investors, government authorities and other knowledge partners. We combine doing and thinking, theory, practice, implementation and strategy, lived and planned city, bottom-up and top-down. We speak the language of initiators and the language of established investors and authorities. It is in this very combination that the basis for long-term quality lies.
