Kas Oosterhuis is a professor from Delft Technical University. In 1987-1988 he worked in Paris together with visual artist Ilona Lénárd and their design studio in 2004 is renamed into ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd].
As from 2007 Kas Oosterhuis is a registered architect in Hungary, executing as General Designer the CET project.
From 2000 Oosterhuis is appointed professor digital design methods at the Delft Technical University and is currently leading a staff of 12 researchers at his Hyperbody group, the knowledge center for Nonstandard and Interactive Architecture at the TU Delft. Kas Oosterhuis is a Director of the protoSPACE Laboratory.
In his most recent book “Towards a New Kind of Building, a Designers Guide to Nonstandard Architecture” Oosterhuis reveals the fundaments of his personal design universe, which embraces the paradigm shift from standard to nonstandard structures and from static to dynamic buildings as the initial condition.
In 2012 ONL received the Wood Innovation Award for their climbing Wall system. In 2008 the Autodesk BIM Experience Award for the CET Project in Budapest. Further award winning building designs include the Saltwater Pavilion at Neeltje Jans, the Garbagetransferstation Elhorst/Vloedbelt in Zenderen and the Hessing Cockpit in Acoustic Barrier in Utrecht and many others.
Recently realised projects like the Bálna mixed use center in Budapest and the LIWA tower in Abu Dhabi are living proof of the effectiveness of the by Oosterhuis and his team developed lean design to production approach, in terms of precision, assembly time, sustainability, costs, and architectural eloquence.
