UN Studio Design models Architecture Urbanism Infrastructure
In the seventeen years since Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos established their studio in Amsterdam, they have continually pushed the boundaries of contemporary architecture, seeking new design practices and building solutions. With major projects recently completed or approaching completion in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Korea and the Netherlands, and teaching appointments in Germany and the United States, UN Studio is creating some of the most innovative and respected work of their generation. Their recently opened Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart cemented their reputation as one of Europe’s most influential architecture practices. This is the complete monograph of UN Studio’s output. From a live-work house based on a Möbius strip to radical infrastructure projects, such as bridges and transportation hubs, from power stations to museums, the practice has subtly, but profoundly, reinvented a number of standard building types and proposed radical new modes of collaboration in the digital age. Ben van Berkel is a graduate of London’s Architectural Association and Caroline Bos holds a degree in art history. Van Berkel and Bos have been visiting lecturers at Princeton University, UCLA, Columbia University, the Architectural Association, London, the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna and the Berlage Institute, Rotterdam. Van Berkel is dean of the post-graduate programme of architecture at the Städelschule, in Frankfurt.
