|ir. Micha de Haas|
Micha de Haas teaches MSc. 1 design studios of BC&T. He studied both at the Bezalel Art and Design Academy in Jerusalem and the TU Delft. As a design approach he advocates a combination of the poetic and the intuitive with a fascination for the building process itself. Art and technology, poetry and building-law, economy and social evolvement should be naturally interwoven in an overall spatial architectural concept. Since starting his own practice in Amsterdam in 1997, Micha has won several architectural awards and competitions and his work has been extensively published in the Netherlands and internationally. Since 2008 with Angie Abbink he runs the office Abbink X De Haas Architectures.
