Arthur started working at BRUT mid-2023. He will mainly reinforce the team in the field of urban design. Currently, he is mostly working on the reconversion of a former military site in Sijsele into a lively neighbourhood of the future, where living, productivity and landscape come together.
Driven by his interest in the urban scale, Arthur enrolled in the ‘Master of Human Settlements’ programme at KULeuven in 2021. Surrounded by inspiring students from all over the world, he immersed himself in the topic of ‘Landscape Urbanism’ through compelling design assignments on the Dijle Valley in Leuven and around the Trancão floodplain in Lisbon. His first professional experiences consisted of a student internship at BUUR and a role as architect–urban planner at B2Ai architects.
Arthur started on his degree in engineering-architecture at KULeuven in 2015. Throughout these studies, he discovered that his passion lies particularly in harmoniously fitting buildings and neighbourhoods into their wider built and natural environments. For his master thesis ‘Urbanisms of Pluralism’, he researched how to foster the urban inclusion of newcomers in Berlin-Marzahn, a neighbourhood that was erected in the 1970’s in what was formerly East Berlin.
