Speakers

Jerry Van Eyck (USA)

Founding principal at !melk

!melk’s founding principal Jerry van Eyck possesses an unusual breadth and depth of skills that he applies to every project under his purview. Trained as a landscape architect and industrial designer, he approaches each commission balancing both the “macro” - how open and public space fit into the larger context of a city’s fabric and the urban experience, with the “micro” - materiality, ornamentation, and pattern as expressed through custom furniture, lighting, paving, and other details that provide each project its own singular identity.

Jerry recently completed “The Park” & Boulevard Public Realm in Las Vegas, “The Barn” in West Sacramento, as well as Tyufeleva Roshcha Park in the heart of Moscow’s “ZilArt,” one of the largest developments in Europe. He currently leads the design for Hudson River Park’s Pier 97 and the iconic Pier 57, both in NYC, among many other prestigious projects throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

A graduate of the Faculty of Architecture at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Matúš has also participated in several research projects and conferences.
