Description

This issue examines works by architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, a practice based in Ghent which has increasingly gained international appreciation in recent years. With projects characterised by intervention and revitalisation, and that at times might seem kitsch or surrealistic, the office prefers to emphasise the stories that connect people and things to buildings, rather than provide objective, primary information. Seventeen works are introduced where the building’s own story is retold and developed, whether through a new addition, changed facade, or alternative approach to the existing space. With essays by Jan De Vylder, Gideon Boie, and Seng Kuan and Angela Pang.
