Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen was founded in 2002 by Kersten Geers and David Van Severen. Since its establishment Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen has earned a reputation as one of Belgium’s most successful and renowned practices, and one of the world’s truly original voices in present-day architecture. Office engages in all architectural and urbanist design, creating projects of all scales ranging from furniture to masterplanning in Belgium as well as internationally. This practice is combined with academic research and teaching. These two aspects of Office’s work are explicitly each other’s mirror, creating unexpected parallels between academic and practical work.

Kersten Geers (Ghent, 1975), graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Ghent, Belgium and at the Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain. He worked with Maxwan Architects and Urbanists and with Neutelings Riedijk Architects in Rotterdam. He was professor at the University of Ghent, and visiting professor at Columbia University, NYC, and the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio (CH), and is currently teaching at the EPFL, Lausanne (CH) and Harvard Graduate School of Design (US). He is a founding member of the architecture magazine San Rocco.

David Van Severen (Ghent, 1978), graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Ghent, Belgium and at the Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain. Since 1995 he designed and made several objects, installations and furniture. He worked with Stéphane Beel Architects, Xaveer De Geyter Architects and for Atelier Maarten Van Severen. He was a teacher and guest critic at the Academy of Amsterdam, the TU Delft, and the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam (NL) and the Architecture School of Versailles (FR), and he’s currently guest tutor at  Harvard Graduate School of Design (US).
