Dutch architect Anne Holtrop has donated A Tower Drawing. According to Holtrop, “A Tower started with tracing forms I found during my artist-in-residence stay at Tokyo Wonder Site in 2009. The abstractions of the tracings disconnected them from the depictions themselves, and resulted in blot-like shapes with little curvatures to them. I am attracted to the autonomy of form that has two apparently contradictory features: on the one hand, an explicitly specific character, and, on the other, an open system that can be discovered in the use and relationships it enables within architecture.”

 

Holtrop began his practice in 2009. Currently, his studios are based in Amsterdam and Muharraq. In 2015, Holtrop’s first two major buildings, Museum Fort Vechten and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain, were completed. His studio has recently realized the Customs House in Manama, which operates as the main post office, and the Qaisariah Souq and Green Corner Building in Muharraq are nearing completion. Holtrop is working on new stores worldwide for Maison Margiela, with flagship stores in London, Paris, Osaka and NYC, and several Unesco listed heritage buildings in Bahrain, including Murad Boutique Hotel and Siyadi Pearl Museum.
