Machteld D’Hollander is an architect living and working in Ghent.
As a psychologist she developed a fascination for architecture through travelling and the renovation of her house with architect Jan De Vylder. She studied architecture at the Sint-Lucas campus Ghent, Belgium. After an internship at architecten de vylder vinck taillieu she started collaborating with Caroline Lambrechts. Together they realised the projects Patijn and B&bazel, projects picked up by different architectural sites and journals (Patijn: archdaily, subtilitas, abitare; B&bazel: subtilitas, afasia, archello).
Machteld continues to be interested in human behaviour and the interaction of people with their environment. As a predoctoral researcher at the research group ‘urban projects, collective spaces & local identities’ at the KULeuven she worked on the multiplicity of identities of places.
Machteld currently works as an independent architect. She’s a regular member
of the jury panel of the faculty of architecture, Sint-Lucas campus Ghent. Her project 'Braem' was published by afasia.
