Christine Conix

CEO Conix Architects

Graduated in 1978 at the Higher Institute for Architectural Sciences Henry Van de Velde in Antwerp, Christine Conix set up her own architectural office shortly afterwards in 1979, which is nowadays better known as Conix Architects. Under her leadership, the firm has grown steadily over the years in terms of diversification, the extent of the projects, their size as well as their content. Its portfolio includes among others the renovation of the Atomium in Brussels (2005), the Belgian EU-pavilion for the World Expo in Shanghai (2010) and more recently, the request on behalf of King Mohammed VI to build an entire new city in Nador, Morocco. This international expansion is no goal as such, but rather a means to further develop and gain new insight in becoming a value partner, locally as well as abroad.

Earlier this year, Christine Conix announced the fusion with another Antwerp based office, RDBM Architecten & Adviseurs. Operating as CONIX RDBM Architects, the architectural office employs 65 members, operating from Antwerp, Brussels, Rotterdam and Terneuzen. Their strength lies in their complementarity: fundamental research in combination with unique architecture.

Christine Conix also resides in the general meeting of the VAI, Vlaams Architectuurinstituut, and De Warande in Brussels, and she’s a member of the Board of Advice of the design center De Winkelhaak in Antwerp. In 2007, she co-founded the G30, the association of leading architects in Belgium, of which she’s vice-president of the board of directors. Christine Conix is further more a sought after jury member for architectural competitions.
