About

Riet Eeckhout

Riet Eeckhout’s practice in Architecture spans 20 years during which she worked as an architect in Brussels (Belgium), Valletta (Malta), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and London (UK). In 2007 she co-founded the architecture design studio APLondon with projects on various scales in close relation to architectural research. This research was structured by the invitational practice based research program at RMIT University (Melbourne) with Professor Leon van Schaik. In 2014 this culminated in the completion of her doctorate, entitled ‘Process Drawing’, under supervision of Professor Martyn Hook at RMIT University (Melbourne). 

Riet Eeckhout lectured at RMIT university (Melbourne), UCA university Canterbury (UK), Syracuse University (London Program, UK), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and KU Leuven University (Belgium). She currently runs a post doctoral research project at KU Leuven University under the title ‘Drawing Architecture’ in collaboration with Professor Arnaud Hendrickx. Her research and projects have been published and exhibited internationally.
