About Studio Frank Havermans

‘Studio Frank Havermans is constantly looking for alternative places in the city for new urban developments to create frameworks for the future.’

As an artist and designer Frank Havermans creates strategic interventions, as wel in commission as self initiated. His work derives from a combined fascination for architecture, urban dynamics, constructions, gravity and tangibility.

‘Havermans’ modules set up transitional spaces, consisting of experimental constructions that include autonomous installations, furniture, urban think models, and even buildings. These play a strategic role, both spatially and socially, in the context in which they are constructed. They function as in-betweens like “transitional objects”, a term used in particular by the psychoanalytic school of object relations of Donald Winnicott (1896-1971).’ *

His architectural innovations always provoke the use around them and can be considered as proposals for architectural and urban change.

Studio Frank Havermans for architectural art, design and urban space is founded in 1999 in The Netherlands.
