    Tim Onderbeke , Labyrinth

    __



    I’m very sensitive to the ‘appearance’ of a building in an environment. As I wandered through the Flemish landscape, I was drawn to the aesthetics of these properties and to the host of ever-changing impressions concerning styles, spatial planning, functions and eras. 



    I’m not an architect. I’m not guided by plans or texts. The architecture allows me to create a new image: the poetry of lines — which is why Le Corbusier’s Poème de l’angle droit is so resonant — , the compositions, the materials that are specific to the building. It enables me to discover architecture as an image, as something layered and complex.



    I look at the architecture through the lens of my camera, the architecture exists for me as an image, not as an object or as a character. It is a search for a mental space that withdraws from the power of architecture.

    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Chabard, Philippe Vander Maren and Richard Venlet explore and explicit the design process of House D through a set of unpublished work documents such as sketches, scale models, series of annotated plans, collages and pictures.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

    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.

    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.

    3 boek 7 8 9 (box set), Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu

    Open now for pre-order. Shipments will start January 11, 2018.



    First 53: €297

    Next 31: €353

    Last 29: €451



    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.

    Libretto, Daniel Buren: une fresque

    On reconnaît l’œuvre de l'artiste français Daniel Buren (°1938) surtout par ses fameuses interventions de bandes verticales blanches et colorées, qui sont inspirées par les stores de magasins et bistrots parisiens. Due au caractère temporel de ses œuvres in situ, une rétrospective classique semble impossible. Pourtant Buren n'a pas hésité d'accepter le défi proposé par BOZAR, Le Palais des Beaux-Arts à Bruxelles. C'est là que l'exposition Une Fresque est née. L'exposition est pensée en deux parties intégrées: tout d'abord un film que Buren a composé et qui évoque toutes ses interventions désormais disparues. La deuxième partie comprend une grande installation qui connecte ses célèbres bandes à de nombreux artistes (en total plus de cent) du vingtième et vingt-et-unième siècle qui ont, de près ou de loin, influencés et inspirés l'artiste. Sont entres autres inclus dans l'exposition pensée par Buren: Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt, Pierre Huyghe, Pascal Marthine Tayou, … et Daniel Buren. Avec l'exposition Une Fresque, l'artiste a créé une intervention unique et nouvelle qui est en interaction constante avec l'architecture du Palais des Beaux-Arts. Ce sont tous ces éléments qui sont au cœur de cette exposition insolite à visiter du 19 février jusqu'à 22 mai 2016. La publication associée est pensée et conçue comme un journal conforme Le Buren Times, un journal créé par Buren consacré à son exposition dans le Musée Guggenheim à New York en 2005. Une Fresque contient des contributions d'entre autres Daniel Buren, Joël Benzakin, Bernard Blistène, Rudi Fuchs, Luk Lambrecht, Frederik Leen et Paul Dujardin.
