“I came to Rotterdam to obtain work experience for my Master’s programme in Czech Republic. I started at Van Bergen Kolpa Architecten where my employer told me about the Academy in Rotterdam and the combination of working and learning. What inspires me about the Academy is that you get to work with architects, but also with people from other disciplines and other interests somehow related to architecture. You get in touch with a diversity of ideas and approaches which makes it very rich study climate. Rotterdam is the place for me when it comes to architecture. Every day on my way to the office I see a different facade. The facade is continuously changing with old and new architecture, development of public spaces and renovations. This diversity and the culture contribute to the international exposure of Rotterdam.”
