UVM Clean Energy Fund

Rolf Keilman is an architect at Truex & Cullins and former managing partner of the Burlington-based firm. Statement from Rolf on his approach to architecture: My mother and father were both craft people. As a weaver and silversmith, they spent their lives crafting items of beauty and utility. My interest in art and architecture came through sculpture and this has spurred a sustained involvement in the craft of building design. Architecture is a child-like activity…creative, spontaneous but requiring great care and method.

"I was born in Holland, immigrated to Canada as a youth, and with the exception of work and study abroad, have spent my adult life in Vermont. While studying in Holland and Scandinavia, I developed an interest in sustainable design and I learned how to express a people’s culture through design. New England has similar architectural traditions….build what is needed, let the craft of building be expressed, include a dose of understated whimsy.

I enjoy collaborating with groups of people and believe it is essential to the making of good buildings. Architecture is a fun-filled journey infused with delicious surprises. The excitement of realizing a beautiful and resource efficient building is an infectious pleasure for all."
