Belgium New Architecture is the sixth in a series of books that examine the significant achievements in modern architecture. A must read current and timeless about the greatest achievements of recent years. A book of reference for contemporary architecture which should be in every library.

As an introduction, writer Pierre Loze will meet architect Christian Kieckens for an informal conversation about current architecture and its future. Steven Beckers, architect, will present his research: The paradigm shift towards urban food production (Le changement de paradigme vers la production alimentaire urbaine). Victor Lévy, architect, will then consider the digital revolution within architecture.

Office/shops – housing/working – cultural & educational sites – public spaces: 62 recently completed structures by Belgian and foreign architects, to be discovered, here in this tome.

The authors

  • Pierre Loze

    Pierre Loze is an art and architecture historian, journalist and writer.

  • Christian Kieckens
    Christian Kieckens is one of that generation of architects who contributed to the image the world has of Flemish architecture of the 1990s as conceptually rigorous, innovative and purist. His creations inspired by fashion, dance, graphics and contemporary art and his architectural works, together with those of some of his colleagues, carried the reputation of Flanders abroad. He received us in his office on the Quai du Commerce, in Brussels’ old dockside neighbourhood. The arrangement of his workspace is clearly representative of this architect’s particular talent. His buildings, like his interior designs, have been conceived in a spirit of minimalism with such sobriety and abstraction as to render them works of contemporary art as much as architecture. No formalist posturing here: form and individuality of expression disappear almost completely, subsumed into the service of the interplay of geometry, space and light.
