Post Constructivism - What about the afterlife of temporary architecture? Geneva-based architects Leopold Banchini designed a new pavilion, re-using the materials of the 2019 Feathers stage designed by the Portugese fala atelier. The multidisciplinary firm wants to take on the opportunity to focus on circular principles of temporary architecture and the re-use of the available materials as a base for architectural expression.
Starting from an exercise in taxonomy, a new pavilion is designed from these components, as an intimate hut for ritual conversations. In addition the Architecture Lab participants will build a public pizza and bread oven, to stimulate the informal use of this pavilion as a meeting place. The oven will be constructed with earth materials, in coordination with BC Architects.
Program: the Architecture Lab will be framed with visits to innovative Brussels-based circular architecture practice BC Architects (managed by KU Leuven lecturers and researchers Wes Degreef & Ken Cooman), and to the construction site of the WTC Towers, Belgium's biggest circular architecture project in the Brussels-North district, led by the internationally renowned architecture firm 51N4E.
The lab costs € 350 per participant / You can register until midnight on Sunday 12th of July.
