Caroline Bos (Rotterdam, 1959) studied History of Art at Birkbeck College of the University of London, receiving her BA (Hons) 1991. In 1988 she founded Van Berkel & Bos Architectuurbureau with the architect Ben van Berkel. This created the opportunity to extend their theoretical and writing projects to the practice of architecture.
Caroline Bos is an analyst involved in all UN Studio projects. She observes, studies and describes the different programmatic issues and communicates these directly with the different parties involved. This working method has been introduced because the architectural assignment has changed from an introverted process into a multi-party, complex and differentiated collaboration process. In the early phases analytical, theoretical and observation skills are requested to get a complete understanding of the commission.
Caroline Bos taught among others as a guest lecturer at the Academy of Architecture in Arnhem, The Academy of Fine Arts and the Berlage Institute in Amsterdam and as a visiting lecturer at Princeton University.
