OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen is one of the most interesting and uncompromising young architectural practices at work today. It is renowned for its idiosyncratic architecture, in which utopian and non-realised projects are also customary. It does not invent the architecture, but reflects and considers what architecture can signify and be today, reducing architecture to its bareness and essence. Their architectonic ideas start from geometrical corrections and rather rigid classifications, in order to measure the world as it presents itself to us and allow life to unfold in all its complexities.
