Jelle Angillis is a historian with a broad interest in the history of architecture and construction in combination with social and cultural history. Jelle was initially active in the building industry himself. In his doctoral research into post-war building practice, he combines his practical experience in the building industry with insights from historical research. In it, he mainly focuses on the fact that, in addition to concrete designs, social interaction, hands and labour have also shaped our built environment. According to him, the design is in this sense inseparable from the realisation, the materials and people who put the drawn lines into practice.
