Francine Houben (Mecanoo architecten)


Three projects by Mecanoo architects were recently completed in Amsterdam: the Marnix swimming baths, housing complex Oeverpad III and the finish building on Bosbaan. The director of Mecanoo, Francine Houben (1955), is to give a lecture in November. Houben studied in Delft and in 1984 set up Mecanoo architects. This office has realized innumerable projects in many countries. Mecanoo recently won the competition for a theatre and congress centre in Spain. Francine Houben introduced concepts such as Mobility Aesthetic, a Room with a View, Holland Avenue and Dutch Mountains in order to discuss spatial planning in the Randstad.
