Van Bergen Kolpa Architects designs architecture for food and living. The office works internationally and focuses on clients, stakeholders and innovators who aspire to create sustainable buildings and cities, both now and in the future. Central to the methodology is the formation of a circular balance between programme, urban landscape and natural resources. Van Bergen Kolpa works in multidisciplinary teams of experts on construction projects and urban planning schemes.
The company’s projects have been exhibited and published worldwide, including at the Sao Paulo Architecture Biennale and on CNN’s World News channel. In recent years, the practice has received various awards and nominations, including the Prix de Rome, the Charlotte Köhler Prize, the World Architecture Award and the Hedy d’Ancona Prize. The office was founded in 2000 by Jago van Bergen and Evert Kolpa
