" Wim Goes is convinced that architecture is more about attitude than about design. Sure he is able to fulfil functional tasks. Sure in the end he makes a design. Otherwise there is no architecture.
Architecture is based on analysis and abstraction all right. But Wim Goes makes a crucial distinction here: he never tries to simplify the complexity of life… and thus of art. The essence of his attitude comes to this: he simply tries to deal with it.” ~ Kris Martin
Project under his supervison have won numerous architecture awards and Wim Goes is a laureate of “Europe 40 under 40”.
