SEA Conversations - States of Matter - Site, Matter, Gesture by Anne Holtrop - 24th February 2023
The materiality of an architectural project is often understood as its construction and expression. Holtrop's own relationship with material has shifted towards the process of working a material and its specific associated gestures. This focus enables his practice to find form as a consequential result of intervening in the process of making.

The site of a project in turn binds material and gesture together, especially looked at from a geological perspective, by studying how the landscape is formed, what the ground consists of, and how it is changing. The exploration of the soil, sand, stone, minerals, as well as the crust, faults, cracks, hills and craters, inform material sourcing and the possibilities of building.

In order to gain a fundamental understanding of a territory the studio explores its geological formations and its material consistency and engage in human practices that have built specific relationships with a specific place, to produce an architecture that is solely focused on the relationship between site, gesture and material.
