It’s Another Architecture Office aim to create another architecture, an architecture that reacts on the society we live in, revealing its failures, its contradictions and inefficiencies. AAO works as another office, it has an extensive network which makes it flexibly and efficient. AAO work for private clients, as freelance architect for other architecture offices and/or in cooperation with other architects.
AAO is owned by Bart Nicolaas (1985). He received his Master degree in Architecture at the Technical University of Delft in January 2009. His graduation project ‘Militarization of New York City/ US Terror Tribune’ is awarded with a honorable mention and was preselected for the Dutch Archiprix 2010.

Since then AAO worked for OA Architects during the design and realization phase of Club Trouw Amsterdam and worked in cooperation with architect Arie Gruijters on an urban design and architectural competition ‘Crisis’ for Europan 10. In April 2010 AAO and architect Niels Limburg have been nominated by the jury of BNA ‘Vertical City’ competition for its project ‘Sponge Block’ and made a interior design for a school in The Hague.
