Our mission is to create vital buildings:
buildings that move, motivate and activate people.
We design bold, original, and highly functional spaces.
Always working from the perspective of our clients and end-users.
As architecture is not about buildings, but about people.
Welcome to P·A. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
virtual reality powered by a mobile solar installation
Last Saturday, we took part in community festival Middfest with Zon in de Stad. To promote solar energy and include people in the design process of the solar hubs, we came up with an exciting solution.
We tested the design with Virtual Reality powered by a mobile solar installation. It was a great way to harvest feedback on the design and show the exciting possibilities of solar power at the same time. Even alderman Barbara Kathmann of the Gemeente Rotterdam took time to 'walk-through' our design in VR.
dag van de stad - 29th of october
We will be present not just once, but twice at 'Dag van de Stad' in Amersfoort on the 29th of October! We'll represent our collaborative projects Weerbaar Weert and Zon in de Stad.
Dag van de Stad is a yearly conference for Dutch city makers: policy makers, designers, investors, and active citizens.
Weerbaar Weert investigates how climate adaptation can act as a lever to improve the spatial quality of the historic city center based on cultural-historical values. We work in a team with NOHNIK architecture and landscapes and Lara Voerman in close collaboration with the Gemeente Weert.
Zon in de Stad aims to spread the joy and fun of solar power. Together with Climate Focus and HilgersomDeen duurzaam, we work on spreading this message via solar shields, solar hubs, and solar pop-up stores. Go to www.zonindestad.nl to find out more.
