Klaas Vermaas

Ben Kraan Architecten BNA

Utrecht, Netherlands
I have continuously worked as a (project) architect for over twenty years. During this time I have worked on the design of many buildings of different type and scale.

The architectural profession is changing rapidly, prompting me to look beyond its boundaries and pursue new interests and knowledge, both technical and social.

Working in design has developed my love for sketching, painting, sculpting and (architectural) photography; my pictures have been published in multiple magazines and books.

I have a broad interest in science and technology as wel as social aspects of global development.
