For Donna van Milligen Bielke architecture begins and ends with architectura. Even if she never menrions it explicitly, for her, architecture suffices to make architecture. Just as a language comprises all its words, including the ones that are rarely used, architecture is based on all its forms and manifestations. Wittingly or unwittingly, every architect stands in relation to all architecture that has ever been made. Not every architect fully acknowledges this, but Van Milligen Bielke certainly does. In her work it is possible to see the depth of the discipline’s history.
