On November 17th, Marnix van der Meer and Bart Kellerhuis return to the origin of their shared roots at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Together with Steven Nobel, they lead Zecc Architects. During this 1·Lectures they share the agency's mission and tell how their work has been shaped by their shared training at the Academy.

Zecc describes their mission as 'Grounded Architecture', working from three core principles. A design should be functional, sustainable and simultaneously engage all your senses. Zecc makes it their expertise to bring together these sometimes difficult to combine principles.
