Matthijs Bouw (One Architecture)

Matthijs Bouw (1967) studied at the TU in Delft. While still studying he was involved in teaching and wrote for various magazines (including De Architect and Wiederhall).
In 1995 he set up the architectural office One Architecture, which is involved in a wide range of projects, from designing private houses to organizing the Atelier Deltametropool for VROM. In its early days, One Architecture was concerned primarily with exploring the boundaries of architecture by means of conceptual projects and by publishing numerous articles about architecture and architectural theory. One Architecture has taken part in various competitions including – recently – that for Les Halles in Paris (together with OMA, XDGA). Other projects include: children’s day care centre ‘Het Kasteel’ (designed when still a student, together with four friends), Villa Bollen in Bakel, football stadium Wankdorf, Hotel Pro Forma, APM Stations Schiphol and urban design schemes for Deventer, Dordrecht, Eindhoven and Tbilisi (Georgia). Matthijs Bouw teaches at various educational institutes and lectures throughout the world. In 2006 a volume was devoted to One Architecture in the DD Design series.
