Over Erick van Egeraat
During his over 25 years of successful practice, Erick van Egeraat (Amsterdam, 1956) built a highly diverse portfolio containing ambitious and high-profile projects in the Netherlands, Europe and the Russian Federation. He has led the realisation of over 100 projects in more than 10 countries ranging from buildings for public and commercial use to luxury and social housing projects, projects for mixed use and master plans for cities and even entire regions. Each of these projects represents his very personal and expressive vision on architecture and urban development. Both Erick van Egeraat and his work have been the recipients of numerous international awards and citations such as the RIBA Award 2007 for the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art or the ‘Golden Capital’ & ‘Best Building 2012 Award’ for the Vershina Trade and Entertainment Centre in Surgut.
Erick van Egeraat graduated from Delft University of Technology, Department of Architecture, with honourable mention in 1984 and was the co-founder of Mecanoo – the renowned avant-garde architects. In 1995 he established (EEA) Erick van Egeraat associated architects with offices in Rotterdam, Moscow, Budapest, London and Prague. In order to better meet the demands of a portfolio as diverse as his, Erick van Egeraat successfully restructured his company early 2009 into what is now Designed by Erick van Egeraat.
