The work of Copers is like an inextricable tangle of aggressive, ironic and magical delusions. It is not straightforward and gradually led to a job, but the artist prefers the way of the confusion, the blasphemy, the unusual.

Lecture Complementarity of scales & functions

't Leerhuys, Brugge

The viewpoints of Paul Lievevrouw are ideologically based on the belief in the vitality of the city, in the qualities of cultural identity, urban density, destination differentiations, ‘convivial’ scale, and the integration tension of interplay and contrast.

“Functionality comes before the form, while the choice of material the logical consequence is of the search for the correct construction. As an industrial designer I’m someone who invents furniture, who chooses the different materials and who shows how things are to be constructed, it’s as simple as that”

Over and over again one finds in the work of XDGA extremely formulated functional principles, which are then solved logically and with appropriate materials in a rigid, extended zoning system. Fascinating surprises not excluded. On the contrary.

Visit Exhibition in Antwerp

De Singel, Antwerpen

The exhibition Willy Van der Meeren seemed so interesting that there archipelago reserved a guided tour.

Visit The interwar period in Brussels

Brussel

We visit various interiors that are normally never accessible. The pool interior of the Residence Palace, the N.I.R. interior and more.

Lecture Form is one function too

't Leerhuys, Brugge

The title shows crisp one of the concerns of Christian Kieckens who will explain in his lecture themes like banality as a base – compaction – borders – accept and reject – structural work as the essential dramatic point in each building – form as a result of a concept.
