Bram van Kaathoven

Research Profile

Bram van Kaathoven is a designer and researcher at the chair of Rational Architecture and the design based research group Bauhütte, which conducts design based research in urban design and architecture. The aim of his work is to pursue architectural- and historical continuity, based on a scientific, and in the tradition of the profession rooted, architectural innovation. Innovation in architecture is never to be introduced "without conditions" but measures itself to the degree to which it is able to create new and meaningful relations with the existing. Therefore, the perspective is always focused on the long term.
