Design Excellence - Koos de Keijzer DKO Architecture
Design Excellence Competitions and the future of architectural practice
Koos will express his passion for delivering high-density residential projects that give back to the city and streets, and offer high quality amenity with the creation of both communal private and public spaces. He will address how architecture must respond to the site and create a sense of place, referencing the area’s history and local context. Citing Eve and Arkadia – delivered under Design Excellence conditions in NSW – Koos will also speak of collaborations as the future of architectural practice.
