Archipel 35 years! Reason to party !? Yes, more than one reason.
After 30 years of uninterrupted presidency Marc Felix the torch, the care and the responsibility is given to a young Bruno Vanbesien. For those who follow Archipel, will have noticed that we choose specifically YOUNG in 2014-2015 !! With the continued growth of Archipel came also the move from Bruges to the YOUNG! Ghent. Archipel aspires to be the architectural culture association of and for East and West Flanders.
We use the exhibition circuit “m0ments” which was organised by KULeuven, Faculty of Architecture in cooperation with Archipel, as a reason to party. The party wants to be a rewarding moment for the past-president and all those who contributed for 35 years to the development and growth of these “islands” meaning litteraly “Archipelago”. At the same time we’d like to lift the veil of what and who in recent years has become Archipel: the Board, the General Assembly, the Secretariat, the Coordinators, the Friends of Archipel.
But we want that night especially to party, with all of you who take Archipel in their heart. 35 years of architecture: discovering, listening, discussing, meeting, watching, traveling, talking, enjoying, towards the wondering … A giant BBQ hopefully in summer weather. During the day you can enjoy the 12 protagonists on the exhibition circuit in Ghent. Then you can still view the exhibition made by students about the work of our protagonists in the cloister of St Luke. At 18 am start the party!
