HCVA invites...

Happel Cornelisse Verhoeven is curious. To fellow architects, to the decisive people around them, to the construction world, to rusted patterns and breaking them open, to small or large projects, to craftsmanship and to the innovation of what is proven good … From that curiosity we work like together with people who make an additional contribution to our work. These collaborations are fundamental to the development of our office.

A few times a year we invite our collaborators – mostly designers, but also other professionals – to speak to us at the office about their fascinations and inspirations under the heading “HCVA invites”.

The aim of the lecture series is to share in pleasant meetings and to nourish the conversation about architecture. Everyone is welcome and you are our guest. There is only a maximum number of visitors. So who comes first who first serves!


Maarten Fritz is our third speaker on 13.11.2019

Stephen Taylor will be our fourth speaker on 14.01.2020
