Kevin Laurence Snel (1991, The Netherlands) is a junior architect at the Rotterdam office of Powerhouse Company. He started his architectural career with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture at the TU Delft. As part of this course he visited the University of Bath to follow an Erasmus Exchange programme at the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering.
After finishing his undergraduate studies, Kevin did an internship with Marc Koehler Architects (MKA) in Amsterdam. During this period MKA shared a building with Architekten Cie. and Kevin was introduced to work for them on the Powerhouse Company-collaborated project Rhijnspoorbuilding, a new department building for the technical faculty for the Hogeschool van Amsterdam.
He began studying for his master’s degree, again at TU Delft, in 2014. During this master, Kevin was a visiting student at the Parsons School of Design in New York, where he worked on the transformation of an existing stone pavilion in New York’s Riverside Park. For his thesis, he wrote an essay titled ‘Architecture for the perceptive in the unpoetic city’ at Explore Lab Studio and made a design proposal for the redevelopment of the American Embassy in The Hague.
