Winka Dubbeldam is a truly global person and architect.  I am proud that she is an Expert Advisor to the Global Partnership.  Born in Sweden, she was the face of architecture for Harvard University, and now has the role at the U. of Penn.  She travels the world, creating her projects in key global markets; her work, cutting edge, beautiful and using sustainable materials, represents the future of architecture. 

Winka Dubbeldam is the founder and principal of Archi-Tectonics [1994].

Archi-Tectonics begins each design process with a focus on the essence of the project. We do so through a performance based, client specific study, which results in the creation of A CUSTOMIZED EXPERIENCE. We realize that human beings acquire their essence through their relations to “Form”. We are passionate about the use of hybrid sustainable materials and smart building systems while remaining in the designated budget. Our expertise in the FTF process [file to factory] facilitates the construction of affordable, high-end design.

Over the years we have built a strong, highly qualified team, ranging from car-designers, fabricators to craftsmen, to name a few. Co-creation with client, engineers and consultants have added critical value to our projects. The combination of Back to Basics and team work, has proven to be a great multiplier of return on the client’s investments. Through this optimization we create a unique space formation, A SPECIFIC DESIGN FOR A SPECIFIC CLIENT.

Dubbeldam has a Masters Degree in Architecture, Rotterdam [1990], and a 2nd Masters from Columbia University, NYC [1992]. She has lectured extensively and taught at the Masters Programs of Columbia University, NYC, Harvard, Cambridge, and Cornell, and currently holds the position of Director of the 2nd Masters Program at UPenn, Philadelphia. Winka is an external examiner for the RIBA/ARB at the Architectural Association, London, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Institute for Urban Design, NYC, and on the Board of Advisors for BOFFO, NYC.
