The ACROSS lecture series provides a forum for young Belgian architects on both sides of the language border. On 27 February, Brussels-based GRUE kicks off the new season, while landscape architect Bas Smets provides an introduction.
Programming Dutch-speaking architects in Liège (Galerie Opéra) and French-speaking architects in Antwerp (deSingel) stimulates dialogue between the two cultures. ACROSS departs from the observation that there is a lack of exchange and dialogue between the French-speaking and Dutch-speaking architectural cultures in Belgium. The programme strives to fill this gap and provide a platform for young architectural firms to reflect on their practice and the context in which they work.
After two successful editions in 2015 and 2016, the Belgian journal A+ Architecture, in collaboration with the Flanders Architecture Institute and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Liège, will once again organise the lecture series ACROSS in 2018. Four young French-speaking offices will take to the floor in Antwerp, while four Dutch-speaking practices will speak in Liège. New this year is that each participant will be introduced by a senior architect from the other language region.
