Erik Schotte

Architect + Partner

‘When I enter a building that we worked intensively on in the past, and I see how people use it and enjoy it, I feel extremely proud. Happy, you could say.’

At LIAG we design buildings that make people happy. Happiness gives satisfaction when it’s something you’ve worked hard for. Happiness is lasting when you can share it with others. That’s why all our projects focus on bringing people together and creating socially sustainable environments.

Erik graduated from the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft in 1991. He gained international experience as a project architect with Dam & Partners and as a project director with OMA / Rem Koolhaas, where he designed the Dutch Embassy in Berlin. Erik has won various prizes for his designs, including the prestigious School Building Prize in 2008 for the Niekée general education and activity centre in Roermond and the VKG public architecture prize for the IJburg College. He has been a partner at LIAG since 2004.
