Tailored Architecture: Flanders

Pap. Vlaams Architectur Instituut 2016

Book ID: 100559

This volume primarily explores the question of how architecture can contribute to society through projects that are tailor-made, or through designs that reveal a cultural and social purpose. Featuring more than 100 projects, and with photographic essays by Anja Hellebaut and Olmo Peeters, it attempts to narrate the role of architecture within the complex European context. In addition, recent developments in the field are investigated in thirteen essays, under four main topics: life, city, scale, and form. They address contemporary issues regarding communal space, reuse, and repurposing, the status of the public domain, and visual language for large-scale urban interventions.
