OFFICE. Pap. Barcelona, 2012 For some time now Belgian architecture has been forging ahead as one of the most interesting in Europe. Following in the wake of more consolidated studios like Robrecht en Daem (2G N.55), Xaveer De Geyter or StŽphane Beel is a new generation of top-notch architects such as De Vylder Vick Taillieu and OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen itself. With a track record stretching back ten years, the studio of Kersten Geers and David Van Severen has tackled all kinds of projects from a radical POV: quasi-utopian city proposals, frontier posts, single-family houses, government buildings, exhibition designs and pavilions. Their architecture has not only to do with the design solutions that emerge but depends on radical reformulations of the programmeÑsuch as emptying the Belgian Pavilion in the 2008 Venice Biennale of Architecture and filling it with confettiÑrigid schemes in planÑlike the square divided into nine of the villa in BuggenhoutÑthe construction of spaces based on concatenated rooms (or enfilades)Ñlike the weekend house in MerchtemÑor the burying of the volumeÑas in their villa in Brussels or the design for the Kunstmuseum in St. Gallen.
