The architect’s house: more than a home
æ-lab, Vrije Universiteit Brussel
EN When an architect designs his own house, he is not solely designing a home for himself and his family, he also sets himself one of the most challenging assignments of his career. Not bound by the wishes of clients, the architect stands for a virtually limitless range of creative ambitions to choose from such as working with new materials or investing in a renewed architectural vocabulary. The house can become his physical business card or just be a one-time personal indulgence.
This lecture takes you through the ideas behind some of the most exemplary architects’ houses worldwide, and especially in Brussels.
On the evening of the lecture the exhibition (re)compose the city — Unbuilt Brussels #2 will be open until the start of the lecture. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover what Brussels might have been like in these unbuilt projects from between 1836 and 1952. Our capital as an urban planning laboratory.
