Flanders has over the past years developed into a hotspot of contemporary architecture, into an architecture cosmos with its own principles. Projects in Kortrijk, Ghent, Antwerp and Brussels by Stéphane Beel, Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Puls architects, Hans Verstuyft, Robbrecht and Daem Architects, Martine De Maeseneer or Huiswserk architects represent new initiatives and unconventional ideas.
Jan De Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Tailleu clearly play an important role in this architecture scene. Their buildings show us how architecture can go beyond what we're used to: functions are being re-defined, proportions are being interpreted with flexibility and materials are being combined in new constellations. 'Let's do what we never should do' is how they correctly describe their own attitude.
The exhibition brings examples of their work, as presented in their first exhibition at the Flemish Architecture Institute, and has an unconventional exhibition lay-out, all showcasing their overall attitude towards architecture.
