Exploring care in architecture for its 2022-2023 season, Flanders Architecture Institute (VAi) is organising a workshops series and lecture with a pop-up exhibition Intersections: Invisible in Architecture. Central to this thought-provoking series co-curated by Hülya Ertas and Luce Beeckmans is the question: “Who has been marginalized by / silenced in the architectural production?”


Three workshops will form the base for the pop-up exhibition:

Participation in the workshops is free, but registration is necessary.


Hülya Ertas is the coordinator of exhibitions and publications at the Flanders Architecture Institute. She graduated from the Faculty of Architecture of Istanbul Technical University in 2005 and completed her master’s degree in architecture at the same school in 2011. From 2004 to 2020 she worked at the monthly XXI Architecture and Design Magazine, becoming its editor-in-chief in 2013. Now based in Brussels, she is a PhD candidate at Sint-Lucas, KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture. She explores architecture’s social engagement focusing on the commons, care and critique.

Luce Beeckmans is a research professor at the Department of Architecture, KU Leuven. Studying the materialities of transnational migration at multiple spatial scales, her research is situated at the intersection of migration, city and architecture. She graduated as an engineer-architect (option urban planning) at Ghent University in 2005. In 2013, she obtained a PhD-degree from Groningen University with an award-winning dissertation in which she studied colonial and post-colonial urban development in sub-Saharan Africa from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective.
