Christiaan Muilwijk

Soon to be architect that has been developing skills and interest in digital tools and material performance. I’ve had an interest in architecture and the possibilities of the built environment for a large portion of my life. I’ve grown to understand my personal agency and objectives of the field through schooling and work. Through communicating and addressing these objectives within the construction industry, I hope to unleash my passion for design in an effort to improve the built environment.
