Lecture Flanders Monument Day | 3 projects

Hoofdkwartier Wit-Gele Kruis, Gent (Ledeberg)

On Sunday, September 10th, Flanders traditionally opens thousands of monuments for the public.
Archipel wants to focus on three renovation projects that managed to deal with heritage in a modern way. Three projects explained and analyzed by their architects in all the details.

Visit Opening Party and Architectural walk

Concertgebouw, Brugge

The Bruges Concert Hall becomes an open house. In 2002 the Concert Hall opened his doors. The architectural pearl of Robbrecht & Daem architects became a vibrant meeting place for art lovers, artists and the corporate business world local and from abroad. 15 years later, more precisely from September 2017, the Concert Hall reveals its secrets even during daytime.

Lecture Poëtry of Daily Dignity

NTB, Gent

In the Archipel program PechaKucha becomes a true tradition. The previous 3 editions gave 33 young Flemish agencies a platform for a very young and numerous audience. In this fourth edition, another 10 young agencies presents their work in the special format.

Lecture Metamorphosis: transformations / adjustments in Bruges

Concertgebouw, Brugge

Thursday October 5th, Archipel presents ‘Architecture as fossilized music’ within the Concert Hall season theme ‘Metamorphosis: transformations /adjustments in Bruges’. Music and Architecture!
Now that a fresh and sparkling wind is blowing through Bruges, we hope that the architectural perception of the People of Bruges is stimulated through the architectural quality of these seven examples.

Lecture Klarté | Maes & Vandelannoote | Maf architects

Budafabriek, Kortrijk

In collaboration with Designregio Kortrijk and the Intercommunale Leiedal, Archipel organizes end of October an architecture lecture within the ‘week of design’.
As the third hatch of the serie “Young Architects”, we selected three promising agencies from the Kortrijk region and give them a stage.

Lecture Coussée & Goris architecten

Stadsbibliotheek De Krook, Gent

The opening of the public library ‘De Krook’ gives Archipel the opportunity to focus on the work of Coussée and Goris architects. After a tour in the building, a lecture will follow with the title “Natura Naturans (vers une nature)”.

Miscellaneous For a respectful, sustainable renovation and redevelopment of the municipal swimming pool in Ostend

On January 11, 2016 the Ostend city council decided to discontinue the ongoing bouwmeester- procedure for the renovation of the Ostend municipal pool. The pool complex (architects Paul Felix and Jan Tanghe, designed in 1967-71, built in 1972-76) was on the Flemish Inventory for Architectural Heritage, and was given a high locus value in Ostend plan Architectural Heritage. Archipel launched a petition for an adapted reuse.
