Studio Wild, a collective of two young Dutch designers, was founded in 2018 by Tymon Hogenelst (1993) and Jesse van der Ploeg (1989). With our practice we operate in areas of tension between politics, architecture, and nature, embracing complexity by working in a variety of disciplines, with a focus on the relation between landscape and architecture. In regions that are at the frontier of the ever changing world around us, generally rural landscapes with a low density. Our personal work could be seen as the embodiment of researching this relationship and a search for a new architecture within this context.
To engage in a dialogue with such surroundings in a successful way, we believe both physical and theoretical work is essential. In our work we aim to unite Praxis and Theory. The importance of building models, prototypes and building elements is crucial to understand the challenges of construction and execution, when building in a both cultural and natural landscape. Through initiating projects within these contexts, we endeavor to make architecture with an autonomous character. Studio Wild approaches every site and project with an original view, creating a means of discussion and dialogue.This method of working in a very intimate way, negotiating with the landscape, results in an architecture consciously situated in time and place.
