Gilbert Koskamp

Touching Cellulose Coordinator, TU Delft / Ssse | OvO

Gilbert Koskamp is one of the founding architects at Ssse | OvO associates architects (2007-) and former office DRFTWD (1999-2007),  Gilbert studied technical engineering and later architecture in CH. After his education, he worked beside his own practice part-time for several architects in Switzerland, Austria and later in the Netherlands.

His work focuses on multiple fields of activity: urban landscapes, a local economy based on ground-bound networks, combined living and working environments, architectural and spatial typologies for new forms of living, working, leisure and care and contemporary visual culture. The starting point is always the social and cultural side of an assignment within the push of the technical boundaries. The emphasis is on connecting and transitioning the urban and landscape.

In daily practice Gilbert expresses his principles by entering into temporary partnerships with professionals from other disciplines, depending on the design of research tasks: landscape architects, environmental geographers, cultural anthropologists, ecologists, economists and professionals in the field of cultural economics and art and culture.
