Wessel van Beerendonk is architect and co-founder of Studio RAP. Studio RAP is an award-winning architectural design and fabrication  studio. RAP’s design process uses innovative design and production techniques, developed in their studio and robotic lab. RAP thereby redefines the role of the contemporary architect. Using digital fabrication, especially robot-assisted production methods, RAP appropriates the role of digital architect. RAP’s designs are characterized by expressive unique and diverse forms that are sustainably produced or assembled using digital fabrication technology. 

Carlijn Kingma graduated in 2016 from Delft University of Technology at the faculty of Architecture, where she won the New Babylon Award, the award for the best architecture graduation projects at TU Delft.  Her drawings reflect, admire or question the mystical and complex world around us. Her work was exhibited in Kunstmuseum Den Haag, and when she won the Architecture Drawing Prize, it was also exhibited in the Sir John Soan’s Museum in London. Currently, you can visit Rijksmuseum Twenthe to see her take on the distribution of wealth in society. Her drawings metaphorically picture money as water and where it flows.
