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.
