Johan Selbing, Anouk Vogel
Anouk Vogel (Geneva, Switzerland, 1977) studied landscape architecture at the Manchester Metropolitan University and Johan Selbing (Borås, Sweden, 1974) studied architecture at the Chalmers University in Gothenburg and at Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. They previously collaborated on various projects in different countries ranging from gardens, parks, art works, bridges, furniture, interiors and small buildings. In 2009 their proposal for the new furniture of the Vondelpark, Amsterdam's central park (which is listed as a Dutch state monument), won the first prize and is currently being implemented. In 2010 they were shortlisted for the Prix de Rome, the most prestigious Dutch state prize for young architects. Their interventions are often described as poetic in nature, intensifying the meaning and experience of specific locations. Furthermore their built works testify to their strong interest for materialisation and craftsmanship.
