Composite Presence – Biennale Architettura 2021
The scenography by Bovenbouw Architectuur shows a piece of urban landscape on a scale of 1/15. 50 recent projects by 45 contemporary Belgian practices contribute to the imaginary landscape. The project selection reveals the importance of the current policies in Belgium when it comes to city planning and tendering. Many of the designs in this cityscape stem from procedures set up by city architects, the Flemish Government Architect, and related committees and administrations. This model arrangement simulates the negotiated urban environment that has slowly emerged from this field of expertise.

Travelling exhibition EU Mies Award 2019 in Bozar Brussels
In April 2019, an international jury chaired by Dorte Mandrup selected a winner from the five remaining finalists for the EU Mies Award 2019 and an Emerging Architect Prize from the earlier shortlist of 40 projects. Since May, a traveling exhibition has been showing models, texts, videos, sketches and drawings of the 40 projects on the shortlist and a summary of all 383 nominees. This constellation spreads the work of European architects and leads to important discussions and collaborations about the way of designing and building, and the interpretation of places, cities and territories. Our project ‘Ryhove Urban Factory’ is on show.

Exhibition ‘Housing Apart Together’
In the ‘Housing Apart Together’ exhibition, Architectuurwijzer brings together 16 Flemish collective housing projects. Collective living is increasingly seen as a sustainable new form of living, but at the same time there are many questions about sharing and living together. Our project ‘Dockside’ is part of the exhibition.

Architectenhuiskamer Editie 11: FOUTLOOS
AHK presents the photo exhibition “FOUTLOOS”. Architecture publications show “the picture-perfect”. Is this error-free architecture of every realization a collection of (im-) perfection? Based on 2 photos, architects show their architecture and their attempt to strive for flawlessness.

Expo ‘Ontwerpen voor Gent’
Ghent houses two highly regarded architecture courses and therefore has a lot of potential when it comes to research and design. During F / a, the City Architect takes the initiative to build bridges. Together with the Architecture and Urban Design students of UGent, the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture, ETH Zurich and the Archipel architecture association, he set up an exhibition with strong student work in which Ghent forms the work field.
The students show interventions in a city that are far from the day-to-day concrete architectural practice, but which, exploratively, represent the tasks and opportunities that the city can offer. The selected projects show Ghent from an explicitly different perspective.
Travelling exhibition EU Mies Award 2019
The authors of the shortlisted works participate in seminars, discussions and lectures and the works are presented in different architecture events worldwide. Our project ‘Ryhove Urban Factory’ is on show.

Verloren ontwerpen, Architectenhuiskamer
A place of honor in a competition, a concept that turns out not to be permissible or a quarrel between clients throwing a spanner in the works… Architects’ living room and Architectuurwijzer give these designs a second life on the beguinage site in Hasselt. About 40 models adorn the decor of the eighth Architects’ living room on 18 May.

Een tijdelijk toekomsteninstituut, M HKA, Antwerpen
A temporary future institute encourages critical thinking about what is coming, rather than looking back at how previous generations imagined “the future.” How will exhibitions stimulate our thinking? Should it be total experiences that lure us away from our screen? How autonomous will art and artists be compared to the rest of the world?

Open tentoonstelling verkavelingsverhalen
Subdivision neighborhoods often have to endure: too close to each other, too little differentiated, the ecological footprint too high … At the same time, residents are experimenting with collective forms of housing, small-scale business, generating renewable energy together, and more. “Allotment Stories” uses these experiments to start a broad debate around the Flemish allotment neighborhood.
