Choisy visits MetaForum

By invitation of Ector Hoogstad Architecten, Jacques Choisy recently visited the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology. Back in the late fifties Choisy - together with Sam van Embden - designed the campus masterplan for the institute, that was being founded at the time as "Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven". He also was the architect of some of the first buildings on the site, such as the W-hal (a machine hall for the department of Mechanical Engineering), that was recently transformed by our office to become MetaForum, the new central student services facility and home of the department of Mathmatics and Computer Sciences. Mr Choisy greeted the result of this transformation with great enthusiasm. During his visit, he and Joost Ector sat down to talk about the start of his career, his decision to leave Switzerland and come to the Netherlands, his position in the office of Van Embden and the process of designing the Eindhoven campus. The interview was captured on video. A short clip will be availble on this website soon.
