Call | projects Flanders Architectural Review N°14

In 2020 the Flanders Architecture Institute will be publishing the latest edition of the biennial Flanders Architectural Review. This 2020 edition will be the fourteenth in the series. We turn the spotlight on architectural production in Flanders and Brussels, and also projects elsewhere in the world by architects from Flanders and Brussels.

Over the years, the Flanders Architectural Review has evolved into a publication that has revealed the increasing quality of architecture in this region. But at the same time it examines this architectural production in the light of changing social, political and spatial developments. Architectural quality is after all partly determined by the way a building or urban development project relates to its context.

For the Flanders Architectural Review N°14 we invite architects, urban designers, landscape architects, principals and others to submit projects of exceptional architectural quality. This edition will once again be an anthology and a moment of reflection that mirrors the breadth and variety of architectural production. In the fourteenth edition we want to put a particular emphasis on projects that link a variety of functions, that make a point of intelligent reuse, and which develop architectural concepts that tackle the densification and concreting of Flanders. Furthermore we want to pay special attention to projects that challange and broaden the discipline of architecture. These might be initiatives outside of traditional buidling processes that contribute to spatial quality, collaborative efforts that reinterpret the position of the architect in society, projects that blur the lines between architectura and other disciplines, etc.

De editorial board of the Flanders Architectural Review N°14 consists of: Isabelle Blancke, Sofie De Caigny, Michiel De Cleene, Petrus Kemme, Petra Pferdmenges, Eireen Schreurs, Bart Tritsmans and Maarten Van Den Driessche.

Practical details
The Flanders Architectural Review is open to projects in Flanders and Brussels and projects carried out abroad by architects from these two regions. But projects that have not been built, artistic work and spatial designs can also qualify for inclusion.
