Houses of Juliaan Lampens

in Eke, Sint-Martens Latem & Astene

On Saturday, June 25th, 2011 we have the unique opportunity to a number of homes of Lampens to bezoeken.In our tradition to visit again at the end of the working year, a protected property (2) we have this year eyeing Julian Lampens. Architect Luc De Vos, former student and collaborator of Julian and one of the driving forces in the association Juliaan Lampens opens up some amazing doors. If there are doors?

Architecture, built by Julian Lampens exudes a power that none of its personality and individuality is lost and looks amazingly young and contemporary. Regardless of fashionable trends. Compelling bold and expressive but also stripped down, stilly, meditative. The work exudes an extreme subtlety and remains at the same time radically.

A quest for purity of form and concept in an unparalleled uniqueness. Inhabited concrete sculptures. About his love of concrete he says in an interview with Koenraad De Wolf (3): “Brick remains one of the best materials, but unfortunately the uses are limited I’m not in love with concrete, but in the possibilities that material. offers. The constructive gesture that allows you as an architect, after all, is the first step towards beauty. “

We visit 3 houses: The private residence of Lampens in Eke (1960), Van Wassenhove’s house in Sint-Martens-Latem (1974) and the house Velghe in Astene. (2001 in collaboration with Luc De Vos).

(2) We visited the house Axel Ghyssaert on June 26, 2009 and the house Jean Vanden Bogaerde on June 26, 2010.
(3) The interview was conducted on the occasion of ‘Juliaan Lampens – architecture’
