Without doubt, architecture and urban planning have a big impact on people’s lives. A good school can have a positive influence on the development of a child. A badly designed hospital can have a negative effect on the healing process. And the way a city is designed can determine whether you take the car, the metro or the bicycle to work. That’s why the term ‘responsibility’ weighs heavier in our profession than in many others. VenhoevenCS is an active member of the BNA (the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects) and endorses its Code of Conduct for Responsibility, Integrity and Professionalism.
