262 Pages Ills & bw. Languaje: Spanish / English.
This monographic issue spotlights the rise of Belgian architects Kersten Geers and David Van Severen. Prior to establishing their own practice in 2002, the duo honed their skills in offices in Rotterdam, Ghent, and Brussels. An economy of means is a prominent feature of their work, and they display a strong proclivity for precision. Their interest in materials, as well as their attitude towards past and present, are likewise ubiquitous qualities that are reflected in their work. Besides an in-depth interview, the issue features several projects, including private homes, an office refurbishment in Kortrijk, Campus RTS in Lausanne, and the Centre for Traditional Music in Bahrain.
