Schiphol airport names new architecture supervisor

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has named Don Murphy as its new supervisor of architecture and urban development. Joining from VMX Architects, he succeeds Liesbeth van de Pol who had held the position since July 1, 2014.

As supervisor, Murphy will be safeguarding the spatial quality of and cohesion between the various buildings at Schiphol. This includes both the public spaces with their many office buildings and the airport terminal.

His tasks will include selecting architects and supervising them in designing new buildings, and Murphy will also be in charge of approving designs for the Building Inspectorate at the municipality of Haarlemmermeer.

Murphy will be working closely together with terminal architects Jan Benthem and Kees Kaan as well as landscape architect Adriaan Geuze, the designer of the public spaces.

Commenting on his new role, Murphy said, “As an independent inspirer and critical thinker, I relish the task of improving and rejuvenating the spatial quality and architectural cohesion of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol with all the conviction and enthusiasm I can muster. It will be a great challenge to ensure the transparency, experience and user-friendliness for all those who use Schiphol.”
