Founding Partner, PLP Architecture
As a founding partner of PLP, 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. He 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, against a background of renewed concern for humanity's responsibility for the health of the planet.
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 has also published his book on architecture and technology, “Smart Buildings”, with RIBA publishing.
