Challenging Architecture


Studio RAP is an architectural design company where we combine the power of computational design with innovative digital fabrication methods. Our team consists of architects, designers, roboticists, programmers and researchers. Together we explore innovative technology and try to improve the way we design, produce, manage and build architecture.

We are based in Rotterdam where we surround ourselves with robots in an industrial atmosphere where we can discover and realise challenging architecture. In close collaboration with our client we design from vision to detail. With diagrams, visuals and prototypes we make the design process clear and insightful. With experience in design, fabrication and contracting we deliver unique buildings within time and budget. In our workshop in the Innovation Dock in Rotterdam we develop innovative building processes together with extraordinary designs.

Together with our robots we challenge the traditional way of building and rethink the architectural profession. This results not only in expressive buildings but also in a thorough hands-on approach to solve problems in the building industry. Our clients vary from municipalities and multinationals to private individuals. They’re characterised by a shared passion for innovation and design.
