This book was published on the occasion of the BRAVOURE exhibition in the Belgian pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Italy. The exhibition was commissioned by the Flanders Architecture Institute and developed by the BRAVOURE team. This publication is a production of the Flanders Architecture Institute on behalf of the Flemish Minister for Culture, Sven Gatz.
BRAVOURE SCARCITY BEAUTY is the official publication on the Belgian contribution to the Biennale Architettura 2016 in Venice. It is a further elaboration of the work exhibited in the pavilion and a contribution to the architectural debate in Flanders and beyond. Comprised out of essays, interviews and images, this book offers an answer to the question what craftsmanship can mean today.
The Flanders Architecture Institute commissioned the team BRAVOURE to develop an exhibition in the Belgian pavilion on the theme of ‘craftsmanship’. The team, consisting of architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, doorzon interior architects, and architectural photographer and artist Filip Dujardin, explores the question of what craftsmanship can mean in conditions of scarcity. In order to demonstrate this, BRAVOURE exhibits fragments of thirteen representative projects of thirteen Flemish architects.
