  • Voor u ligt een selectie van mijn werk. Projecten met een grote verscheidenheid aan schaalniveaus - van ruimtelijke strategien tot stedenbouwkundige studies en van appartementengebouwen tot bezoekers- en buurtcentrum.Projecten waaraan ik heb gewerkt als teamspeler bij Klunder architecten, projecten die ik initieer als zelfstandig ondernemer en projecten die ik in samenwerking met (jonge) bedrijven onderneem.

    Dit boekje toont een brede interesse en fascinatie voor het vak en het ruimtelijk discours in bijzonder.

    De ontwerpen hebben een conceptuele basis en zijn ruimtelijk sterk verankerd door een grondige analyse van de opgave, context en programma.

    De projecten tonen een pragmatische ontwerphouding, waar esthetische, ruimtelijke en conceptuele overwegingen en de alledaagsheid van het bouwen hand in hand gaan.

  • Newark Visitor & Community CenterTowards an Urban Rennaissance

    2009, Bokkers van der Veen, Architects & Consultants

    Newark is a schizophrenic city. Downtown Newark is a quilted landscape of arbitrarily patched-together parking lots and buildings: an illegible jumble of solid and void. While normally parking lots serve specific buildings in the city itself, in Newark these lots serve New York commuters. Newark acts as the parking reservoir for New York. It is a city in transit.

    Newark needs to reclaim its identity and aim for a more self-serving future. We propose a new urban renaissance for Newark based on its rich industrial heritage and an intertwining of public buildings, Riverfront access, underground parking systems and community-based development. Newark will become a Destination in itself.

  • Metropolitan AreaThe vast quantities of water in this region are frequently used as waterfront leisure facilities such as parks and housing in neighboring districts. In Newark, these recreational spaces are less prevalent. Newark utilizes its waterfront mainly for industrial purposes.

    In comparison with other cities in the area Newark does not have many great parks.Many great infrastructural monuments can be found in the region and especially in Newark. They remind us of a great industrial past and heritage, which must be cultivated for future generations.

    Metro Passaic ParkThe current initiative to create several riverfront parks is a good start.But Newark wants more. The city demands a functioning metropolitan park system organized around Newarks greatest natural landscape, and the source of its origin: the Passaic.

    The proposed NVCC functions as a hinge between the Waterfront & Ironbound.Great ambitions require great programs, so the NVC must become the NVCC: Newark Visitor & Community Center.

    The NVCC, with many extra public amenities, is situated in the heart of the Metro Passaic Park, close to Penn Station and Downtown.

    Boston has the Emerald Necklace,Chicago has Lake Shore Drive,Newark and New Jersey will have the Metro Passaic Park.

    Facade with fins, declaring Newark from several angles. The fins reflect the hot southern sun, while indirect daylight easily pentrates to the buildings heart.

    Steel Truss welded by local steelworkers to create a canopy over the Passaic with a fantastic panoramic view of the Jackson Street Bridge Truss and the Amtrak Dock Bridge Framework.

    Roof with Solar Panels, making the NVCC a Net Energy Producer. Concrete ceilings and floors to generate Thermal Mass for a steady comfortable temprature year- round.

  • Alleviate Ironbounds parking problemsThe area around Penn Station is characterized by a great need for parking spaces. Asphalt in Newark serves two masters: its own commecial and residential needs as well as the marooned vehicles of commuters to New York.

    We propose to create a large underground parking garage to alleviate the pressure on the existing public space. In doing so, we can attract long-term investors to the project and create multiple Public Private Partnerships.

    By concentrating the cars underground, the city is free to explore new uses for its public space. The garage system under the NVCC plaza can be extended to accomodate 600 cars or more, serving as a true parking depository for Penn Station and Ironbound.

    Regional VisibilityThe Newark Visitor and Community Center connects Ironbound to the Riverfront without obstructing neighborhood views of the Passaic. NVCC is organized to maximize its presence towards regional traffic.

    The building acts an advertisement for itself, and the city. The large text reading Newark is visible to passing traffic in flashes of legibility. As one moves past, the text appears and then quickly disappears, leaving the impression in ones mind. Because of the orientation of the sculpted steel fins, the text is only visible from specific angles: as one crosses the Jackson Street Bridge, moves along Raymond Blvd., or enters the city on the local train.

    Building on HistoryThe NVCC addresses the rich and great history of Newark. It refer-ences the great monuments of infrastructure, symbols of the industrial past and reinterprets this language to create a new be-ginning. A new beginning that is already anchored in the minds of Newarkers and Ironbounders.

    The design constitutes another step towards Newarks urban ren-naissance. By reflecting the construction techniques of historic icons, the NVCC engages Newarks future, enhances its present, and honors its past.

    Metro Passaic ParkWe propose to look beyond the site limitations of the design brief and stretch the waterfront park area of the NVCC along the Passaic to join the existing Minish Park and Mayor Bookers riverfront ini-tiative. By removing the cars and parking spaces from Commercial Street and putting them under the NVC Plaza a connection with Minish Park accross the Amtrak Dock Bridge becomes possible.

    By bridging these natural areas, Metro Passaic Park will become the public destination for Newarks residents. We propose to restore the native beauty of this area, while simultaneously provid-ing a much-needed place for recreation and relaxation.
