Ira Koers

Studio tutor

Ira Koers studied architecture at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. In 2003 she set up Bureau Ira Koers in Amsterdam to explore the scope of architecture. A cross-section of this spatial expedition goes from a public stairs at Almere, to the gardenhouse Tumble House and holiday home Merry-Go-Round. A design for the new library of the University of Amsterdam in 2009, in collaboration with artist and graphic designer Roelof Mulder, marks the start of a fruitful collaboration centered around designs for cultural and public projects amongst others in St. Petersburg, Buenos Aires, Milan and Beijing.
