PREVIEW: Architecture Season 2018-2019

The architecture programme of the Flanders Architecture Institute for 2018-2019 explores the exciting interface between the building practices of today, the challenges for the future, and the richness of the past. It does so by examining unknown treasures from the archive for their contemporary relevance. By looking for the fading boundaries between architectural history and contemporary design practice. And by challenging young designers to work towards the future when tackling spatial issues. 
(Sofie De Caigny, Director Flanders Architecture Institute)
