We can all recognise the rotating wheel that appears on our computer and phone screens when we have to wait for something to download, buffer, update or restart.
A few years after graduating as an architect from the Delft University of Technology, Frank Foole (1958) founded his own consultancy and design studio with a colleague. Noorderlicht Achitecten works on the designs of museums, theatres and airports, as well as the renovations of (monumental) heritage. Foole also works as an architecture lecturer at the Hague University of Applied Sciences. As an architect, Foole is interested in the contrast between (old) architectural movements, which take a long time to emerge, and the fast and easy way in which we make the new digital visual culture our own.
