Arthur Degeyter

Arthur Degeyter (°Bruges, November 16, 1919 – †July 26, 2004) was a Belgian architect.

Degeyter studied at the Royal Athenaeum in Bruges and at the Art Academy of Bruges. In 1937 he started his training at the Sint-Lucas Institute in Ghent. He came into contact with adepts of the Gothic Revival as well as with proponents of modernism. He subsequently took an urban planning course at the Architecture Institute Ter Kameren in Brussels. In 1941 he graduated as an architect. He did an internship with the architects Jozef and Luc Vierin.

In 1947 he established himself as an independent architect, first in Mariakerke, then in Lichtervelde. He then built classical houses in Flemish style, following the example of his teacher Vierin. His first resolutely modernist home was the one along the Zeeweg in Sint-Andries for glass artist Michel Martens.

Arthur Degeyter was surprisingly unconcerned with prizes. The only time he was honored with the Van de Ven Prize was in 1964 for a doctor’s home in Mouscron and for the Artificial Insemination Center in Loppem.
