ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] develops solicited and unsolicited design and research in architecture, urbanism, and landscape design. ZUS contributes to the changing urban landscape through its dedication to architecture’s public role. Founded in 2001 by Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman, the studio consists of an international, 25-strong, multidisciplinary team, with offices in Rotterdam and New York. ZUS has received numerous national and international awards for their boundary-crossing work. ZUS believes architecture’s imaginative power can contribute to a necessary shift of boundaries between private and public, long and short-term, nature and culture, and temporary and permanent. These contradictions enable progressive projects, nurturing long-term responsibility on the one hand and inviting user and public involvement on the other. These projects are never solitary statements; they are always fundamentally anchored in the city, the public domain, and within the long-standing traditions of architecture, urbanism, and landscape design.
