RIBA London Student Awards of 2016

Our collaborator Maria Damianidou was selected by the University of East London - Architecture + Design as ‘the young talent’ of her graduation year. As a result, she represented the UEL during the RIBA London Student Awards 2016. Her graduation project focused on a new Greek embassy in Molenbeek, Brussels.

Sum @ Brussels Biennale of Modern Architecture

The second edition of the Brussels Biennale of Modern Architecture wants to highlight Brussels’ post-war architecture. During the month of Ocotober you can visit and participate in guided tours, bike tours, lectures or enjoy some movies about the methamorphosis of Brussels after the second world war.

One of the guided tours is organised in the 'Postchequegebouw / Office des Comptes-Chèques Postaux', a creation of arch. Victor Bourgeois and restaurated by Groep Planning/SumProject in 1997-2002. The office building has an impressive foyer and paternoster lifts. The

SumProject is currently developing a new future for the former thermal baths. More info on the project page and an article published in La Dernière Heure (French).

The lecture ended with an interesting debate and a reflection based on our rich ‘field experience’ regarding large scale urban development projects in Brussels (and on the inner ring road in particular).
