After an intensive study commissioned by City of Rotterdam and the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the former municipal library building to select a proper building to house the EUC, a city monument from 1923, was chosen to house the future EUC. The design, made by Erick van Egeraat, will display the original qualities of the building.

“The design will be light and fresh, a modern educational faculty in an astonishing monument” tells Erick van Egeraat. The design consists out of five stories and houses a lecture hall, reading rooms, tutur rooms and offices for the staff of EUC. Inside the building, a new atrium will extend up from the ground floor until the new glass roof.

The atrium will provide the interior of the building with daylight and a new central hearth. To conserve the historic value, the original rich interior with its authentic marble and the original stained glass will be restored. The new building will be a magnificent asset for the Erasmus University of Rotterdam and the city of Rotterdam.

The design of the Erasmus University College fits (Designed by) Erick van Egeraat’s previous designs in which the focus is on adding quality to inner city issues. The expectancy is to start the construction in July 2012 and to realize the building in September 2013.

News – 2 Jul 2009

On June 26th, the Moscow Court of Arbitration formally validated the decision by the Stockholm Court of Arbitration dating from March 2008 in the case of Dutch architect Erick van Egeraat vs. Russian developer Capital Group Co. over a copyright dispute. The case was much publicized as it dealt with serious copyright issues many international architects face.

At the same time, the favorable ruling of the Stockholm Court set a powerful precedent legitimizing Erick van Egeraats’ claim that his former client had unlawfully handed over his design to another architect for re-design without his consent. A Russian Court confirming this international ruling against a Russian company and a major player in the business is to be considered exceptional.

Erick van Egeraat is very pleased with the decision of the Moscow Court: “this is not only good news for me, but also for my fellow architects. Copyrights are a very important instrument in creating real estate value and indispensable in protecting architects work. Knowing that those rights are properly protected across international borders makes our profession rightfully rewarding!”

Dutch Architect Practice Continues

Rotterdam, 4 Feb 2009

Erick van Egeraat announces the continuation of his activities in a new company named Designed by Erick van Egeraat BV.

On January 20th, Erick van Egeraat filed for bankruptcy of his Rotterdam based (EEA) Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects BV. Following this event, Erick van Egeraat yesterday reached an agreement with the Court appointed administrator, Raymond de Bok, to carry on work on all projects.

Both parties are pleased to see that the final obstacles towards a durable solution have now been removed. After having secured the support of several investors, talks about the details of continuation with the parties concerned are currently underway.

The current portfolio contains over 50 active projects. The consequences of the current climate on the financial and real-estate markets demand critical reflection and thorough restructuring. Erick van Egeraat: “This is something I am very aware of and have been working towards for the past year.

On the other hand I can say that I am very happy to have received so many positive and supportive reactions. It is truly comforting to see such a wide variety of clients; partners and colleagues offer their assistance. This has definitely helped to strengthen my confidence in a good outcome of this process.”
