Set up out of a desire to change the architectural landscape to create smarter, more energy efficient buildings, BKVV is taking the Netherlands and abroad by storm. The agency, Blok Kats van Veen Architects, specializes in self-sufficient architecture that is both technologically advanced and affordable. Unlike many other architects, BKVV has a strong emphasis on using physics to integrate their architecture with engineering, economics, culture and climate. Their architecture reach far beyond the borders of the Netherlands and can be found in several African countries.
