I am An Michiels, architect on a detour :-)
Until 2009 - prior to obtaining my MA Curating Contemporary Design at Kingston University (UK) - I was working for several years in London as a project architect on residential schemes.
From 2010 to 2012, I initiated design exhibitions, events and workshops in London with Julia Jarvis under the name JJAM Curators Collective. Our ‘Everyday Delights’ project got a nice review on yatzer.com.
End 2011, I returned to my home country Belgium after 14 fantastic years in London. I had the opportunity to join the team behind the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk. I was taking care of communication and project management for the 2012, 2014 and 2016 editions of the fair and the strategic run-up to the 2018 edition.
Together with Joost Vanhecke, I am also the co-founder of dotsandplanes. Check dotsandplanes.com to find out more about our curated inspiration tours for architects and design professionals.
I am currently working on a freelance basis on bespoke PR projects, communciation and writing within the field of design, interiors and architecture. Current clients include AKT magazine, bulthaup belgium, RR Interieur and Designregio Kortrijk. Interested in my work? Drop me an email.
