You never really give up on your old loves. While rebuilding my website recently I came across a lot of old drawings and research material from past projects that made my heart flutter. For the series ‘Sanctuary’, a Canadian Sci-Fi/fantasy romp among vampires and lizard-men, I had the chance to get completely immersed in the world of the Gothic and […]
Todd van Hulzen is also a paper cutter, mostly for fun. He makes garlands, rosettes and birthday streamers full of intricate patterns, often portraying animals and people. Here are some examples.
Todd has been intermittently working on his own cabin in Oregon and occasionally posts updates here. Each year seems to be greeted with a new design. The most current update reflects a desire to finish the project quickly and affordably, but also to keep true to the spirit of openness in the great outdoors. The wooden walls have now given […]
After designing the permanent heritage exhibition space in the library of Hoogeveen we were invited to redesign the entire library. This begins with the entryway and ends with various study spaces. In between there is an information counter, a cluster dedicated to new acquisitions, a creators’ laboratory, a central meeting square, an area for workshops and classes and, of course, […]
For those of you who can’t make it up to Den Helder (North Holland) to see our latest exhibition “Zeeslag! / Naval Battle!” we’ve made a walkthrough video of the exhibition for you.
Not every pitch is a winner. We could dedicate a monthly post to all of the marvelous fish that got away. The odds are simply not always in your favor, and everyone knows this before going in on a design tender. Still, it’s a shame to have the designs disappear into oblivion. We were particularly proud of designs we made for the Mauritshuis in […]
For the Dutch Navy Museum in Den Helder we created a kind of memorial display for a bit of neglected, but no less glorious, history. In cooperation with the Technical University in Delft the Navy Museum aspired to tell the story of a famous moment of synergy between the Dutch fleet and scientific progress, when the submarine K XVIII hosted […]
Science Center NEMO has made a captivating little video of the revolving sun that we conceived for the permanent exhibit World of Forms.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vELb0p6NYJM
This year Todd van Hulzen and Studio Louter are submitting some projects together for various awards. For one particular international award we made a little video tour of the new permanent installation at NEMO: World of Shapes / Wereld van vormen. Narrated by yours truly!
So far only positive reviews for our big permanent installation “Dutch Delta Experience” in Zeeland. DeltaPark Neeltje Jans commissioned Todd van Hulzen and Studio Louter to create a large, dynamic visitor experience in their visitors’ center located on the great storm barrier accross the delta of Zeeland. Our answer was to create a filmed panorama of 270 degrees. Here we […]
A short video of my father, Alvin Van Hulzen, winching up the whole timber girders that are going to make the raised floor of my future cabin in Klamath County, Oregon. The beams probably weigh about a ton each, being about 26 feet long and 16 inches in diameter (800cm x 40cm). Our makeshift crane, which was anchored pretty soundly […]
It will come as no surprise that the “we” at T. van Hulzen design is often just myself. True, working in symbiosis with Studio Louter in Amsterdam means that with each project there’s a whole team involved doing production, content, multimedia, etc. But rarely do I get around to doing a project that is just for myself. That changed this […]
