For Jurriaan van Stigt an architect is a specialist displaying a wide range of skills and interests; one who possesses deep integral knowledge regarding the total reach of the profession. Architecture not only offers opportunities and creates space, but also closely determines these. His inspiration is drawn from the context in which architecture arises and the role it plays in realising ideals. For Jurriaan, the connection between creating, materialising and construction, with and for people, is absolutely vital. He has a wide interest in the many aspects of social debate. This is manifest for example when working and building in Mali, when editing the FORUM magazine and in his involvement in incorporating fine art.
Jurriaan graduated with honours in Architecture at Delft University of Technology in 1988. That same year, together with Marianne Loof, he established 'Loof & van Stigt Architecten' in Amsterdam. When Adriaan Mout joined as a partner in 2005, the bureau was renamed LEVS architecten.
