Architecture of the exotic everyday. For Dirk Somers, architect and founder of Bovenbouw Architectuur, architecture in the year 2019 should mainly offer the city added value. In the exhibition The House of the Explorer, the Flanders Architecture Institute offers a unique view into the universe of the Antwerp architectural firm. As a visitor, you get under the skin of the architect-explorer who ends up in a wondrous world full of concrete buildings and paper ideas.
