Academic year 2016-2017
This spring the faculty welcomes Lionel Devlieger and Maarten Gielen of the Brussels based office Rotor as Visiting Professors.
Representing a new approach to contemporary architectural practice, Rotor develops critical positions on design, material resources and waste through research, exhibitions, writings and conferences. Core element of their professorship is a special studio, focused on the deconstruction of modernist and contemporary buildings slated for demolition, to make their components available for a redesign assignment.
Their professorship will start with an international conference on deconstruction and reuse at the faculty. Halfway through their stay they will give a public lecture.
