Ir Willem de Bruijn

Willem de Bruijn, born 1975, was trained as an architect in the Netherlands and graduated from Delft University of Technology in 2001. He currently pursues a PhD by text in Architectural History and Theory at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. His interest in old alchemical books has led him to question the status of the book within the architectural discipline on a theoretical level but the research is also driven by a passion for making books. One of these is 'Poliphilo in London' that transposes and re-writes the famous Renaissance story of a 'struggle for love in a dream' by Francesco Colonna to the context of contemporary London.Willem de Bruijn enjoys a research grant from the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
