Studio Anne Holtrop

Anne Holtrop started his own practice in 2009. Currently, studios are based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Muharraq, Bahrain. In 2015, his first two major buildings were completed, Museum Fort Vechten in the Netherlands and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain for the World Expo in Milan. Recently realised is the Customs House in Manama, operational as the main post office, and the Qaysariya Suq and Green Corner Building in Muharraq. The studio has completed new stores worldwide for Maison Margiela, with flagship stores in London, Paris, Osaka and Shanghai, and is currently working on several UNESCO-listed heritage buildings in Muharraq. Holtrop is an associate professor at the ETH Zurich. For his practice he has received various prizes, including the Aga Khan Award in 2019. The 2G monograph series dedicated its 73rd issue to Studio Anne Holtrop in 2016; and a new monograph, Site, Matter, Gesture, by El Croquis was published in 2020 on the studio’s practice and ongoing research. The work of the studio, as well as the teaching and research results, are presented and collected internationally in biennials and institutions, most recently at the first Sharjah Architecture Triennial, the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, Frac Le Plateau and the Carnegie Museum of Art.
