Favorite sustainable project:
Zaha Hadid Architects’ wooden football stadium.
Favorite Dutch design:
My mom has a small practice which gives neurofeedback to patients. This helps the brain permanently with self-regulation. For that, patients have to sit comfortably still with sensors on their heads for almost an hour and watch a movie. Staying still so long can be a bit hard and uncomfortable, so that’s why my mom asked my dad, who designs machines, to build her a chair which can adapt to different positions, so keeping still is made easier for patients. The design is a half-moon shaped chair of aluminium, that rotates around its axes.
Best advice I’ve ever gotten:
‘Delete Facebook of your phone, you’re addicted’ – team members Bauke and Michiel
Best/worst joke I know:
My personal drive in this project:
Imagining my future grandkids to not being able to breathe properly, because of current generations consuming too much. I do not want to see this become reality, and the Solar Decathlon is the place where I’ll start doing something about it.
