OFFICE // Kersten Geers David Van Severen
mardi 25 février à 18h30, entrée libre, conférence en anglais

OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen was founded in 2002 by David Van Severen and Kersten Geers. Their philosophy is best summed up as follows: “While every attempt of making architecture seems to drift off in rhetorics of programmatic organization and ironic provocation, form and space as such have become a rare good. In our projects we try to counter this by making direct and precise spatial proposals, formal compositions without rhetoric. This literal architecture aims for a phenomenological experience, perhaps despite of its program.”

The two architects graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Ghent, Belgium and the Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid. Van Severen is currently a guest tutor at Architecture School of Versailles. Geers was professor at the University of Ghent, and visiting professor at Columbia University, NYC, and the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Switzerland. He is now visiting professor at the EPFL (Swiss Institut of Technology in Lausanne).
