New Mastermind: Marcel Jansen, partner at WAACS

Tenacious. This is the quality that best describes WAACS partner Marcel Jansen (1968). A graduate of the Technical University Delft, Jansen considers himself an all-rounder whose concerns and interests as a design engineer embrace all aspects of his practice: aesthetics, ergonomics, construction, client relations. “It’s the process that buoys me, not the product per se.” Jansen’s dogged disposition makes him a good team player (preferably if he’s the one in the lead). He’s not one to go by the book. “Improvisation (from the Italian improvisatore) is a phenomenal source of creativity, one that is sorely undervalued in northern Europe.”
