AV 232 Office – Kersten Geers David Van Severen

ISBN: 9788409287000

37.80

This edition of AV Monographs showcases OFFICE, a Brussels-based architectural firm renowned for its idiosyncratic architecture, in which realisations and theoretical projects stand side by side. The projects are direct, spatial, and firmly rooted in architectural theory. The firm reduces architecture to a limited set of basic geometric rules, within which life unfolds, in all its complexity. Amongst the 24 total projects featured, OFFICE’s warm minimalism takes the form of a ring-shaped home in Spain, a crematorium in Ostend dotted with geometrical shapes, and a state-of-the-art olive oil mill constructed on the estate of the first Medici villa outside Florence.
