Designs whisper, chat or plead. They talk to us and to each other, through place and history. They represent ideas.

They represent power. I explore what architecture tells. What it conceals. And why.

andrea prins   architect | researcher | writer

Essays  at the interface between architecture, history (of ideas) and societal changes. What is the impact of spatial decisions on people’s life? Often I take my own experiences and the ever changing meaning of key words as a starting point. Seemingly self-evident topics appear in a new, surprising light.


Research themes  include the housing crisis, sustainability, South-Korean architecture and writing itself. I experiment with alternative ways of connecting to the audience, for instance mixing long reads with other forms of texts. And what are the capabilities of spoken or drawn essays and the dialogue?


You   may find my work -in German or English but mostly in Dutch- at Archined, de Architect, domus, Het Nieuwe Instituut, IIAS, the Rotterdamse Academie van Bouwkunst, the Stimuleringsfonds, Trouw and Vers Beton. Books were published by WalburgPers, Uitgeverij Verloren and Bonas. ‘Do you want to dwell like your Granny?’ is a video contribution to the international Women in Architecture symposium.
