(autotranslated) Balancing on the line between art and architecture both architects are mainly engaged in experimentation, reflection, and physical engagement with the end result and with input from the viewer. Their profile is as follows: “Gijs Van Vaerenbergh is a joint venture founded by Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh after their studies architecture. Their work consists of site-specific procedures, systems and structures that establish a two-way interaction with the environment. That provides an artistic practice that is devoted to research into the foundations of the construction itself and its impact on the audience. The duo uses the architectural language in an inappropriate manner, as a medium for relatively autonomous and self-reflexive projects. In addition to these experimental projects Gijs Van Vaerenbergh also makes architectural projects and assignments in which they use the results of their experimental work. That way, they follow a program in two directions: from experiment to architecture and vice versa “Pieterjan previously worked at TOP Office, L ‘Escaut and Architecture Workroom Brussels. Arnout Ney + Partners and noAarchitecten. Pieterjan teaches at Ghent University and Arnout at KULeuven (LUCA) Faculty of Architecture.
