Belgian Architects and Their Houses
Almost all architecture is designed on commission for a client. And the architect’s design must always bend to the wishes or demands of that client. The situation is turned on its head, however, when the architect becomes their own client when building, renovating or redecorating their own home. All of a sudden, the architect has the freedom to give full expression to his/her vision on living and the humble home is transformed into something of a calling card. This book contains 17 such calling cards: 17 extensive reports on the lofts, apartments or houses where leading Belgian architects such as Bob Van Reeth, Juliaan Lampens, Peter Swinnen and others live. Each report is accompanied by a text in which the architect expounds his/her own vision on architecture.
