29.11.2023 - Events
Francine Houben is set to present 'People, Place, Purpose, Poetry,' a depiction of Mecanoo's distinctive architecture that reflects her quest for identity in a globalized world. From the texture of local stones to the colors of fruit trees and the rituals of inhabitants, Houben will delve into the specifics.
The presentation will spotlight Mecanoo’s commitment to designing spaces for people and initiating the exploration of urban environments, observing the life within. The ultimate aim is to create buildings that people are eager to use, with poetry serving as the conduit for the elusive elements of architecture.
Lunch with an Architect serves as a platform for reflection and discussion aimed at enhancing the quality of architecture in Brussels. In collaboration with Flagey, the event, held three times a year, offers the real estate world insights into major contemporary events in architecture, focusing on Belgian issues and ongoing emblematic projects.
