Studio Frank Havermans

The Studio creates strategic interventions, both self-initiated and commissioned. The innovative and experimental works arise from a combined deep interest for architecture, urban dynamics, landscape and infrastructure. In addition, there is ongoing worldwide research into self-organization.

Modules set up transitional spaces, including small scale architecture, urban think models and drawings, autonomous installations and (public) furniture. These play a strategic role, both spatially and socially, in the context in which they are constructed and literally redefine space as we know it. These interventions invite us to experience space in an alternative way, challenging us to contemplate the identity of a certain location.

The urban and architectural innovations always provoke the use around them and can be considered as proposals for architectural and urban change.


‘Havermans’s explorations forms resisting gravity to create a new order outside of what we know about function, place or materials.’ 


Aaron Betsky, architecture, art & design critic


‘Landscapes seem to gain meaning when Frank passes by. An extraordinary achievement.’ 


Floris Alkemade, architect, author


‘Conceptually Frank Havermans flies from a much lager scale than can be read at first glance. He reads the city, dives into its development history, then releasing the past and creating a new reality with its historical sensitivity.’ 


Astrid Aarsen, architecture historian


‘Havermans immerses himself in unfamiliar megastructures, moves among the inhabitants and finally arrives at thinking models built on intuition, critical distance and belief in the creative power of survival. He creates models to reflect on society that consists of many stories simultaneously.’


Diana Franssen, art historian, former curator Van Abbemuseum
