Rademacher de Vries is a design and research office that focuses on architecture, the city and the urban environment. Through building, teaching and exhibiting we seek to produce relevant spatial insights that are rooted in a self-conscious understanding of our discipline and culture.

Our design methodology is characterized by a research driven approach that investigates projects through the perspective of different scales, cultural transformations and technological innovations. In close collaboration with our clients, we apply this design method to overcome disciplinary boundaries and actively engage in societal challenges.
