    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

    3 boek 7 8 9 is a publication by architecten de vylder vinck taillieu in collaboration with MER. Paper Kunsthalle. The box set of three books gives an extended overview of both built and unbuilt work by the office, realised over the past decade.



    As a box set, 3 boek 7 8 9 follows the already published 1 boek 1 2 3 and the not yet published 2 boek 4 5 6. In contrast to the first set of books – fully edited by the office itself and conceived as a continuous, associative, cross-referencing text – this third set takes an opposite approach. The box compiles three existing monographs – a re-enactment of the out-of-print 2G N. 66, the 13th catalogue from the series De aedibus international and the recently published a+u 561 17:06 – and brings these ‘as-found objects’ together as one narrative.



    The editorial strategy employed in connecting the three separate monographs is an extension of the office’s overall attitude towards architecture, as demonstrated in their work. Using the formal interventions of copying and cutting, the monographs – each with their own household identity – are appropriated and related to each other. As such, the box set not only presents an overview of projects, it embodies these projects in the texture of the publication itself.



    3 boek 7 8 9 is available in a limited edition of 113 handnumbered issues and is accompanied by a short essay on architects’ books by Moritz Küng.
