[en] Beyond the playfulness of absolute freedom, and beyond the headache of impossible
meaning, proximity, diversity and density inherent to the condition of layered contexts are
fundamental tools for a sustainable future.
AgwA architecture office was co-founded in 2003 in Brussels by the author. During the last
10 years, it has been confronted to a wide range of projects of different natures in various
contexts. This paper will explore these projects through the lens of abstraction (radicalism of
the formal simplicity) and of pragmatism (evidence of the functionality and of the constraints).
