Caroline Bos (born 1959 in Rotterdam) studied History of Art at Birkbeck College of the University of London. After co-founding Van Berkel& Bos Architectuur Bureau in 1988 she stopped working as journalist to focus on being the internal critic for the practice, writing everything from employment contracts to essays and descriptions of projects that were yet to be designed. In 1999 Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos founded UNStudio; a network of specialists in architecture, urban development and infrastructure. As an analyst she has been involved in all UNStudio projects. Her observations and synthesis on different programmatic issues has become integral with the work of the different project teams.
With Ben van Berkel she was editor of Forum (1985-86) and the ANY publication ‘Diagram Works’ (1998). She was visiting lecturer at Princeton University and has taught at the Berlage Institute, and UCLA. Her interest in the concept of the architect is reflected in the books she has co-written with Ben Van Berkel: ‘Ben van Berkel Architect’ (1992), ‘Delinquent Visionaries’ (1990), ‘Mobile Forces’ (1994), ‘Move’ (1999), Unfold (2003), 'Design Models' (2006).
Caroline Bos also completed a Master's Degree in urban and regional planning, at the Geosciences Faculty of the University of Utrecht.
