OMA’s Ellen van Loon to give 2018 Women in Architecture lecture

  • Comment

Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) partner Ellen van Loon is to give this year’s Women in Architecture lecture in London next month

Now in its eighth year, the AJ/Architectural Review Women in Architecture programme celebrates women architects and promotes role models for women in practice.

In 2016, the free annual lecture was given by Jane Drew Prize-winner Odile Decq; while last year fellow French architect Manuelle Gautrand – the first woman to win the European Prize for Architecture – talked about three of her most recent projects including the proposed Parramatta Cultural Centre in Sydney

Van Loon joined Rotterdam-based OMA 20 years ago and has led several award-winning building projects – schemes she describes as combining ‘sophisticated design with precise execution’.

Among them are a pair of 2012 Stirling Prize-shortlisted buildings: New Court, the Rothschild Bank headquarters in London; and the Gartnavel Maggie’s Centre near Glasgow.

Some of her other most significant contributions include the new G-Star Headquarters in Amsterdam (2014); De Rotterdam, the largest building in the Netherlands (2013); the Prada Transformer pavilion in Seoul (2009); Casa da Musica in Porto (2005), winner of the 2007 RIBA European Award; and the Dutch Embassy in Berlin (2003), winner of the European Union Mies van der Rohe award in 2005.

Van Loon is currently working on Factory, a large performing arts venue for Manchester; a new building for Brighton College in England; the home of the Danish Architecture Center in Copenhagen; and she has recently been appointed for the renovation of the Binnenhof in the Hague.
