    In Practice, Philippe Vander Maren & Richard Venlet

    In this book, together with Pierre Chabard, Philippe Vander Maren and Richard Venlet explore and explicit the design process of House D through a set of unpublished work documents such as sketches, scale models, series of annotated plans, collages and pictures. They retrace the collaboration with the client, the exchanges between the architect and the artist, the moments of discovery of essential features of the design, the similarities and dissonances with architectural precedents. This book was produced following the In Practice conference in Liège, Galerie Opéra, on June 12th 2018. In Practice is an initiative of Harold Fallon (KU Leuven) and Benoît Vandenbulcke (ULiège). Initially, In Practice were conferences at which architects were invited to unveil their working documents and tell their story. These short conferences were followed by a conversation with a panel of critics, architects, editors and academics. Architecture opened up to the modalities of research.With this book, In Practice goes further and positions itself at the heart of research, while remaining at the heart of the architect’s work. The book is written on the basis of collected statements. Or rather, it is written by many hands: the external outlook and inner knowledge complement each other. The work dissects the genesis of a project, it shares the doubts, it extracts the mechanisms that lead to choices and it discovers the intuitions which make poetry.

    Chantier Construction Site, AgwA

    AgwA shows work in progress: execution as a verb. A collection of collected images. Without a necessary order or sequence. Enlarged and then zoomed in again. But moments that had to be visualised at that time. Perhaps merely to serve as witness. Perhaps ultimately as an unencumbered catalogue of which only this or that will really be understood later on. Or will even be used. AgwA makes work of work in progress: exe¬cution as a context. That all of those images are collected is not odd. Not odd in and of itself. As situated: the importance of the building site. But also not strange for AgwA itself. The work itself of AgwA. Increasingly the work situates the idea of what a building truly is. How it is made. Or rather, how it is actually made. — Jan De Vylder 



    AgwA is a Brussels based architecture office. The projects of AgwA architects focus mainly on public infrastructures and buildings for collectivities in Belgium. Amongst these, reconversion projects in complex urban contexts are predominant. In these loaded surroundings, AgwA aims at clear spatial cuts which can be built in a very straightforward way. To achieve this, the internal resources of architecture are fundamental. Structures, construction materials, ample spatial systems and a precise contextual positioning are at the heart of their design strategies. Their architecture is simultaneously ordinary and exceptional.



    Photographs by AgwA, Filip Dujardin, Antoine Espinasseau, Delphine Mathy and Sévérin Malaud. Texts by Jan De Vylder (architects de vylder vinck taillieu, Ghent) and Tom Emerson (6a architects, London). AgwA partners : Benoît Burquel, Harold Fallon, Benoît Vandenbulcke

  • Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Comics were Van de Moortel’s first love: his first drawings, his first stories; a dwelling of fantasies and a lack of reality: he devored them as a child. His first publications with MER., the Cylinder Series, is not a real comic book series, but the idea is based on the structure of it. It fits perfectly to get Van de Moortel’s work published. The sketches, the colouring, the humour that feels close to the practice: it’s a work in itself and not just a representation of images. The artist prints one new Cylinder issue on the occasion of each new project or exhibition. Each cahier has a unique design and cover. Each will be published separately at first; becoming one book after 10 editions that will be published as a whole. Every edition is a new adventure having the same basic players, added, transformed. It’s one big playground: like a show. This is the sequel to Cylinder # 8. It is the ninth issue of the Cylinder Series.

    Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage, Mira Sanders

    Under the generic title of Journal of a user of space, Mira Sanders (°1973, Brussels) develops a manifold oeuvre on mapping and territory as well as architecture and social space. The network of lines as well as the physical and temporal trajectories of her wanderings, constitutes through her drawings, videos and installations, a work of fiction inspired by the everyday and the trivial. As an invitation to multiple travels, Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage was presented during two exhibitions, at Argos – Center for Art and Media in Brussels in 2016 and at the Musée d’art contemporain de la ­Haute-Vienne, Château de Rochechouart in 2018.

    Un nouveau musée, Simon Boudvin

    French artist Simon Boudvin (°1979) brought a narrative but also political depth to the architectural project of building the new museum of folklore in Mouscon. His work consisted in inserting bricks that were recovered from the demolition sites of several small heritages in Mouscron. The bricks inserted in the facade contribute to the story of the preservation of tradition and minor architecture under threat. As part of the work, the book 'Un Nouveau Musée' consists of a text by the artist, in which he extensively descibes the museum, without showing it.

    Things & Air, Rein Dufait

    For Rein Dufait, the definition of sculpture is the adding or subtracting of material. His rigorous approach to his chosen medium has led him to develop a singular — perhaps also solitary — practice that is nourished by an insistent curiosity about material (whether natural or manmade) and a fascination with form (whether organic or artistic). In his work, Dufait confronts the fundamental questions of sculpture: how to divide space; how to combine textures; how to create volume and height. His sculptures are never narrative, seldom figurative, but often refer to organic structures. Always human in scale, they reveal an efficiency in construction that is fundamental to their meaning.

    Heterotopia, Joost Colpaert

    Joost Colpaert (°1965, lives and works in Oudenaarde, Belgium) has been producing paintings and videos for many years in which recurring cycles, fluent progress and the force of water play a central theme. He is inspired by his musical background: where a painting is spatially restricted, music can continue to flow (eternally). In a series of paintings from around 2000 the idea of recurring cycles was expressed in the form of rings, streamers and tyres which wound around and through each other. Since 2002 he has become more and more inspired by water and rivers; a reflection of a recurring cycle. He works this figuratively using maps and landscapes, but also abstractly.

    The Matrix Project, Thierry Lagrange

    The Matrix Project comprises two contexts, namely photographic work of architect Thierry Lagrange and the self-reflective trajectory that he developed during his doctorate at KULeuven. Lagrange’s practice-based research developed to an autonomous artistic project, in which he studied the signification and nature of observation within a creative process. Through his multifaceted practice as an architect, photographer and researcher, Lagrange developed ‘The Matrix Method’; a method that stimulates creativity within different contexts and can be implemented for example in art education. For the Matrix Project, 25 years’ worth of photographs was entered into a context of research and presents a new perspective on different ways of seeing in our present visual culture.



    Thierry Lagrange (°1970) is a civil engineer/architect. He runs the architecture office ALT-architectuur. He is active as a photographer and videomaker and finished his doctorate Look Here Now, Mapping Design Trajectories. Legrange is lecturer an researcher at the Faculty of Architecture, KU Leuven.

    Time Regained, A Warburg Atlas for Early Music

    This publication is a kind of workbook or manual. It is not a music history, nor is it a technical, musicological book. It is rather a book about materials – musical materials and their relation to other artistic materials. It is not a book for professionals or specialists but for those who like to explore the capacities and possibilities of artistic materials. However, it never talks about them in a technical way. This book is instead about love and desire for old repertoires, and especially for polyphony, attempting to retrace its shape: the initial desire that makes one want to perform this music.
