Sustainability tender

At Patch22, Tom Frantzen’s new commuter building in Amsterdam-Noord, architecture, project development and sustainability go hand in hand. To understand this coherence, you need a calculator and you need to talk about things like deposit invoices, strategic deferment of payment, business case, foundation costs, profit, percentages and incentives. According to Tom Frantzen these are terms that you must also use as an architect. After all, as an architect you have more control over your design and you are better positioned during the process.
