Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


Jeroen Geurst (1960) studied architecture at Delft University of Technology and co-founded Geurst & Schulze architects with Rens Schulze in 1984. Over the span of more than three decades, the office has developed a large oeuvre of predominantly brick buildings. Geurst furthermore recently contributed a chapter entitled 'Brick: On Size, Scale and Order' to the book Brick: An Exacting Material. In an interview with him, we discuss the qualities, possibilities and implications of brick and how various architects such as Edwin Lutyens, Álvaro Siza, Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Hans Kollhoff, Aldo van Eyck and even Mies van der Rohe influenced his perceptions of brick architecture.
