Vassily studied architecture at Moscow Architectural Institute and The Berlage Institute, The Netherlands. After working at the office of Aldo van Eyck and Theo Bosch in Amsterdam, he began his own practice in 1999.
Popov Architecten is a green architecture office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our goal for every project is to shrink the ecological footprint while creating evocative and enduring buildings.
Integrating program with the specifics of a site, our projects emerge naturally from their surroundings and use energy and material resources efficiently.
We incorporate local materials, reuse existing materials and mark sunlight’s patterns in our work to reinforce the relationship of project to place.
Nature is always carefully considered and celebrated, even in an urban setting.
We regularly review new and alternative materials and construction methods to improve upon aesthetics and performance, and to reduce the ecological impacts of architecture.
