Frans van Vuure

Director, UNStudio

Frans van Vuure, Director at UNStudio, joined the company in 2008, bringing a wealth of experience translating design concepts into technical and feasible construction processes. Apart from his knowledge of complex geometries, interiors and detailing, he is an equipped communicator of what the intrinsic quality of an architectural design means. Since Frans joined the studio, he has coordinated a variety of projects, of which the project management process has required special attention as the qualitative aspects of these projects had to be established very early in the design phase. He worked on the successful project PPP/DBFMO, the head office for the Education Executive Agency in Groningen, in addition to the Kutaisi International Airport, a fast-paced project in which planes were landing just nine months after construction began. Currently, Frans is responsible for some of UNStudio’s vital Middle East projects and acts as lead consultant for the design and construction of Wasl Tower, a more than 300 meter-tall high-rise project in downtown Dubai in which Mandarin Oriental will open an exclusive luxury hotel and operate residential apartments, planned to open in 2020.
