Ron Bakker Founding Partner, PLP Architecture

Ron Bakker has contributed many award-winning buildings and urban design
projects to major world cities and his work is widely recognized for its civic and
environmental responsiveness. Ron is excited about the contribution that
architecture can make to the quality of urban life and the role of new
technologies in the built environment. He designed The Edge in Amsterdam
and is currently working on a super high rise in Kunming, China; a Crossrail
over-station development in Mayfair, London; Tree House, a tall mixed-use
project in central Rotterdam; an extension to the World Trade Center in
Amsterdam; and Assima, a large urban retail, residential and office project in
Kuwait City.


Ron is frequently invited to address academic and professional symposia and
besides leading the design teams on various projects at PLP Architecture he is
also in charge of PLP Labs, where he is involved in research and collaboration
projects with academic institutions, government organisations and commercial
clients – operating at the intersection of technology, culture and space. His
book on architecture and technology, “Smart Buildings”, was published in 2020
by RIBA publishing.
