Non-Conventional Architectural Engineering



Born 1979, Amsterdam. Studied Building Technology in Amsterdam and Architectural Design at Eindhoven University. Graduated in Product Development in 2006. Worked at Tentech Utrecht as a technical designer and engineer for lightweight and membrane structures and worked as a tutor at Eindhoven University.

Ivo currently works in Rotterdam as an architectural designer and engineer. Het teaches at Utrecht School of the Arts and Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and works as a teacher and researcher at LUCA School of Arts Brussels - Ghent.

In his research he’s inspired by paper and textile techniques. He’s looking for ways to make the architectural structure more contemporary and its vocabulary more extensive. His work has been defined as technological art with temporality and the tectonics of the skin as a starting point.
