The Architectural Archives of the Province of Antwerp and the Flanders Architecture Institute are hosting an international conference as a prelude to ‘Stynen Year’ in 2018. Belgian designer Léon Stynen (1899-1990) epitomises an entire generation of post-war modernist architects whose oeuvres and profiles share many similarities. Typically, these architects were part of a strong national and international network; up-to-date and knowledgeable; prolific and varied builders (which points to great ideological flexibility); consummate professionals; able to access large-scale and visible commissions.
The conference convenes on Thursday 7 December, with a full day of presentations, followed by a keynote evening lecture (speaker to be confirmed). Presentations continue the next morning, with the conference concluding at midday on Friday 8 December. Delegates are invited to register for tours of Stynen’s buildings in Antwerp on Friday afternoon. Read more about the conference
