Frans van Vuure received his Master of Architecture from the Architecture Academy in Amsterdam in 2000. He joined UNStudio in 2008, bringing a wealth of experience translating design concepts into technical and feasible construction processes. Apart from his knowledge of complex geometries, interiors and detailing, he is an equipped communicator of what the intrinsic quality of an architectural design means.

Since Frans joined the studio, he has coordinated a variety of projects, of which the design management process has required special attention as the qualitative aspects of these projects had to be established very early in the design phase. He worked as Senior Architect on the successful project PPP/DBFMO, the head office for the Education Executive Agency in Groningen, in addition to the Kutaisi International Airport, a fast-paced project in which planes were landing just nine months after construction began, and which is currently being extended on design by UNStudio.

Frans is responsible for projects in the U.S., North Italy, U.K., Georgia, Russia and some of UNStudio’s vital Middle East projects like wasl Tower, The Island MGM resort and the new Dubai Financial Center; all projects that are currently in construction.
