Trip Along Flemish roads # 01 /05/2017

West & Oost-Vlaanderen +West- Vlaams-Brabant,

This spring we’re off on a journey, not on an exotic destination like Chandigarh or Naoshima, but to the Flemish hinterland where the names of the hamlets vaguely sounds familiar and where cyclists tracks are guiding us.

Pascal François composes. He moves with planes and volumes, reduces then until the essence of material and space remains. Each project is an investigation into the use of the entire spectrum of architectural resources.

Pascal François

Pascal François (°April 1966) is a Belgian architect and runs the architects office Pascal François Architects in Aalst.

Pascal François started his career in the architectural firm of Achiel Hutsebaut, Christian Kieckens and Hans & Linus Meier (Sion, Switzerland) to start his office in 1994 in Aalst. He works since 1996 as an assistant at the KU Leuven University, St. Lucas architecture.

The perfectionism of Pascal François is the simplicity of the form with an extraordinary attention to detail. The staging of light and space begins with the treatment of the various surfaces of the materials chosen. In this architecture, which one might describe as rational, light plays a decisive role.
