JDS Architects

BELGIUM (FOUNDED IN 2006)

“Our projects are humanly designed, politically engaged, financially viable, and structurally realistic,” says Julien De Smedt, the founder and director of Copenhagen-based JDS Architects. With works such as Maritime Youth House and The Iceberg apartment building, the internationally recognized designer and architect has generated a renewed awareness of architecture in Denmark.


De Smedt was born in Brussels and received his diploma from the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London. Prior to founding JDS Architects, he worked with Rotterdam-based OMA and co-founded PLOT, an architecture firm in Copenhagen.


His work has been on view around the world, in cities such as Copenhagen, Toronto, Paris, New York City, and Sao Paulo and has received multiple prizes including the Golden Lion for World’s Best Concert Hall in 2004 at the Venice Biennale. In 2005, JDS Architects entry was chosen for the redesign of the Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Oslo, which hosted the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in March 2011. It is the world’s first ski jump to be built of steel and rises 1230 feet above sea level.
