- architecture on site was founded by architect Helge Kühnel in 2003.
We started with architecture tours in Amsterdam and other cities in the
so called Randstad agglomeration. In the following years we extended
our activities to destinations in Germany and selected other European
cities, mainly places we know well because we lived, worked or studied
We still are a small agency working with a
network of local architects and guides. Our tours are always arranged
with care, based on first-hand information. As local professionals we
are informed about the most recent developments and benefit from our
contact with local architects' firms and institutions. We enjoy sharing
our knowledge and enthusiasm with interested people, helping them to
'read' architecture and understand design decisions by providing the
necessary background information.
Our services vary from guided architectural tours to custom made arrangements
for day programs, an entire weekend or a couple of days. We visit
districts, cities and regions, or projects based on a specific theme,
like for example sustainability, regeneration, housing typologies. For
all questions and further information we invite you to contact us.
In short, our competences are:
- we are architects / professionals
- we live and work on the spot
- we are up to date about recent developments
- we maintain good contacts with local authorities, architects and other institutions
- we speak your language
