Join The University of Texas School of Architecture with Anne Holtrop, of Studio Anne Holtrop, Amsterdam, for a lecture on “Site, Matter, Gesture” live-streamed on the Texas Architecture YouTube channel.
Anne Holtrop started his practice in 2009. In 2015, the first two major buildings, Museum Fort Vechten and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain, were completed. Recently realized projects include the Customs House in Manama, operational as the main post office; and the Qaysariya Suq and Green Corner Building in Muharraq. The studio has completed new stores worldwide for Maison Margiela with flagship stores in London, Paris, Osaka, and Shanghai, and is currently working on the completion of Unesco-listed heritage buildings in Bahrain: Murad Boutique Hotel and Siyadi Pearl Museum. Holtrop is also an associate professor at the ETH in Zurich. In 2020, a new monograph, Site, Matter, Gesture, was published by El Croquis about the practice and its continuous research, the subject of this lecture.
