This book unfolds the design and realization process of Verbiest, an architect’s house and an artist’s workshop in Molenbeek (Belgium) by Brussels-based architecture office AgwA with Maria Evelia Macal Guerra.
A set of unpublished work documents including sketches, scale models, plans, and pictures is combined with a set of texts by AgwA’s partner Harold Fallon.
The theoretical position of a project at the heart of a practice can be sensed in these writings.
Beyond the singularity of this remarkable project, the book demonstrates the critical relevance of construction, energy and circularity in architecture theory and discourse.
The book is supported by the KU Leuven Department of Architecture and has been double blind peer reviewed.
AgwA is an architecture office based in Brussels, Belgium. AgwA was founded between 2003 and 2006 and is currently led by the partners Benoît Burquel, Harold Fallon and Benoît Vandenbulcke.
