In this book, Matthieu Wellner and Buero Kofink Schels (architects Simon Jüttner and Sebastian Kofink) unfold the design process of T.I.A. House 1 +2, a project they designed and built in Almeria, Spain. Through the close observation of a set of unpublished key documents including sketches, scale models, plans, screenshots and pictures, they explore the critical value of real-time improvisation in architecture. Three additional contributions shed lateral light on the level of practice-based research, image theory and reuse paradigm. [less ▲]

Practices in Research #01 First Steps and False Alarms contains four invited contributions of practicing architects who engage their practice in academic research.The album ‘First Steps & False Alarms’ (Kilgour, 1995) assembles recordings from the artist’s home tape archive, proposing to discover his creative starting points, his explorations and experiments from a period of five years, shaping a musical personality. Similarly, ‘Practices in Research #01’ does not make a priori assumptions about distinctions between realisations from the practice and theoretical reflections. As such it is an experimentation: it poses questions and situations, it proposes answers and actions.

In fall 2020 a first peer-reviewed selection of articles will be published following the conference “Practices in Research”. In this publication, practicing architects were asked to develop a reflection upon the nature of the interaction between their practice and their research. They were explicitly invited to make an explorative use of text and illustrations, with the objective to overcome the traditional duality and hierarchy between word and image. The contribution reflect further on non-hierarchical relationships between verbal and non-verbal content, on the nature of such mixed contributions and on some consequences of their irreducibility to verbal forms.

Contemporary architectural practices have become diverse and eclectic. It has become diffcult to identify a unity that oversees the discipline of architecture or a form of ‘hereditary’ continuity. The issue of its transmission is a challenge. This is particularly true as in Belgium, the teaching of architecture, which originally stemmed from a fine arts tradition, has recently been integrated into universities. This means that it is important to find a new way of passing on architectural practices. [less ▲]

Oversize is a multi-university academic initiative addressing the design opportunities and challenges represented by spaces that are too large in regard of current needs, such as empty buildings and structures. These spaces are prominently present in many contexts, and their future is still open to speculation. [less ▲]

Oversize addresses the opportunities and challenges represented by in the conception and the transformation of large spaces, such as industrial halls, and spaces that are too large in regard of current needs (empty buildings and structures…). These objects, like larger sports infrastructures, exhibitions halls, industrial facilities, stocks, etc. are very present in the territory since the XIXth century. Their conception is still open to speculation, and it becomes increasingly important to propose new ways of reusing these structures. [less ▲]

Initially, In Practice are conferences at which architects were invited to unveil and tell the story of their working documents. These short conferences are followed by a conversation with a panel of critics, architects, editors and academics. Recently, a first book was published about (the design process of) a house designed by P. Vandermaeren and R. Venlet. The text dissects the genesis of a project, it shares the doubts, it extracts the mechanisms that lead to choices and it discovers the intuitions that make poetry. This paper explores the methodology inherent to the making of the book. [less ▲]

This project addresses the transformation of a large warehouse of about 1000sqm built between 1900 and 1970 in Molenbeek into a single family house and a shared artistic workshop. The project addresses various issues and themes, amongst which the environmental impact of the construction and of the future consumptions. The artefact is not limited to the design outcome but comprises the design process. [less ▲]

This paper explores several projects of the author’s architecture practice. These projects address the transformation and reuse of existing large scales structures. Through time, the use of the buildings is questioned. The nature of the activity changes, the scale differs, the needs evolve, the regulations are modified. It concludes with the details of the academic project “Oversize” as a pedagogic and research project. [less ▲]

Today the understanding of design processes is fundamental in the interpretation of architectural designs, since universal rules of composition (harmony) and common ideals (beauty) have failed to support them exhaustively. This paper explores ways of engaging the design expertise of an architect as an immersive research tool allowing to recompose design processes and narratives. The research engages design practice as a tool, and is completed by the verbalization of the results. The paper exposes this modus operandi through a transversal one-day exercise in the framework of several architecture studios at Uliège [less ▲]
