Jurriaan van Stigt
My expertise:
For Jurriaan van Stigt an architect is a specialist displaying a wide range of skills and interests; one who possesses deep integral knowledge regarding the total reach of the profession. Architecture not only offers opportunities and creates space, but also closely determines these. His inspiration is drawn from the context in which architecture arises and the role it plays in realising ideals. For Jurriaan, the connection between creating, materialising and construction, with and for people, is absolutely vital. He has a wide interest in the many aspects of social debate. This is manifest for example when working and building in Mali, when editing the FORUM magazine and in his involvement in incorporating fine art.

MY AVAILABILITY
MY GOALS AND MOTIVATIONS
Foundation Dogon Education (Stichting Dogon Onderwijs, SDO) was founded in 1995 by architect Joop van Stigt. The mission of SDO is to establish regional development in central Mali where, among others, the people of the Dogon live. In the past SDO set up projects for water supply, dams and schools. Meanwhile, the field widens towards projects for creation of curricula, restoration of World Heritage, improving infrastructure, building health centres, onions homes, homes for teachers and more.
SDO is a small and effective foundation with three board members and five other members. It plays a role in the selection and preparation of projects, advises on the implementation and raises funds to finance projects.
