Lecture Lecture with New Year's drink

Theaterzaal Ledeberg, Gent

Archipel starts the working year with a foreign look at the mastery in Flanders with a lecture by Mechthild Stuhlmacher from the Rotterdam office Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architects. In Mechthild’s opinion, the mastery of the architect and the mastery of the craftsman are often regarded as synonyms.

Following the lecture, there is a New Year’s drink with an introduction about the theme year Mastery by Bruno Vanbesien, chairman Archipel.

Lecture Making the architectural space

Abdij Roosenberg, Waasmunster

For 30 years, the Dutch Benedictine monk and architect Dom Hans van der Laan taught practicing architects. His lessons were devoted to a deeper quest: to record the foundations of architecture once and for all.
Caroline Voet brings the rich archival material back to life and lets it look inside the learning environment where Dom van der Laan passed on his mastery.

Trip 日本 Japan | GROUP 1: SPRING 2018

When Archipel sent a survey in June 2017 to measure the interest for the 2018 Japan trip, the response was overwhelming. More than 300 people want to join, 130 in the Easter vacation.
Try to avoid Eastern vacation! … That was the wise advice that European and Japanese tour operators gave us. Because we know that the Easter holiday is the only option for many people, we have been able to decorate one trip, 80 places, but we still offer the trip twice in another period. It will be 3 trips.

GROUP 1: from March 3 to March 17, 2018

Lecture About tradition and mastery

Gent

Japan, the land of the rising sun, is the travel destination of 2018. The mastery in Japan defies all imagination. Not only in the control of the architectural space, choice of materials and masterful detailing, but also in the surrender of knowledge. Archipelago takes more than 200 architects to the land of the rising sun, divided over three trips.

Debate Conversation about the work of Zygmunt Bauman

Stadsschouwburg, Brugge

The academic opening of this art happening will take place in the form of a debate about the work of the Polish-British sociologist and philosopher of Jewish descent, Zygmunt Bauman (1925-2017).

Lecture Festival of polyphony

Concertgebouw (Kamermuziekzaal), Brugge

The call of the muse is a double reading in the polyphony festival of the Concertgebouw Bruges. Bruges had a big musical appearance thanks to the polyphonic music that was performed mainly in churches. The center of polyphony was the Sint-Donaas Church on the Burg in Bruges, where polyphonic music could be heard since the fourteenth century. The history of the St. Donaas’ Church served as inspiration for the pavilion of Toyo Ito, which was built in 2002 as a symbol for Bruges, cultural capital of Europe.

Hubert De Witte (director Musea Brugge) dives into the history of the church, after which Hera Van Sande (employee Toyo Ito pavilion Burg, Bruges 2002) indicates the importance of this place as muse for the pavilion of Toyo Ito.
