The Berlage Keynote: Baukunst

08 October 2020 18:30 till 20:30 - Location: Oostserre & Online - By: Communication BK

In their lecture, entitled “Art and Technology,” Baukunst places architecture at the crossroads of art and science in the project development process to think about building and build new ways of thinking.

Baukunst was co-founded by Adrien Verschuere with offices in Brussels and Lausanne. He studied architecture at ISA St-Luc Tournai and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, previously working for Herzog & de Meuron in Basel and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam. 

This lecture is part of the Berlage Keynotes, an ongoing lecture series by internationally prominent practitioners, designers, and thinkers. A selection of speakers from different disciplines, including architects, artists, filmmakers, and theorists, present how their work engages with contemporary design issues and debates. Organized and hosted by the Berlage, the series is part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment’s Public Programs held on Thursday evenings. This fall semester, speakers include Baukunst, Béka & Lemoine, Theo Deutinger, Flores & Prats, Adriaan Geuze, Gigon/Guyer, Piovenefabi, and Studio Gang.
