Pioneering Practices Proces Meesterproef
Hovering Between the Built Space and the Mental space of the Architect.
This meesterproef is part of the Pioneering Practices Research Project, which analyses the designs of several buildings in Flanders from the 1960s and 1970s. They range from experimental housing and large-scale buildings such as schools, ecclesiastic and cultural complexes to leisure centers and city halls. This research aims to generate more knowledge on these ‘pioneering buildings’, by combining design and practice-based expertise with theoretical research. Architects asLeon Stynen (1899-1990), Alfons Hoppenbrouwers (1930-2001), Jos Van Driessche (°1930), Paul Meekels (°1929), Paul Felix (1913-1981) and Lode Wouters (°1930), Bob Van Reeth (°1943) (…) were designers/builders as well as teachers, passing on their ideologies, skills and knowledge through their practices and teaching studios.
