68.25

Belgian architect Xaveer de Geyter is the focus of this issue, which features a selection of projects from the past fifteen years. He began his career working with Rem Koolhaas at OMA, and started his own firm in the early 1990s. De Geyter believes architecture is about opening up possibilities: the potential of a site, the hidden opportunity of a particular situation, of a programmatic conflict. Among the featured projects are Hasselt’s Z33 Museum, Sint-Lucas School of Fine Arts in Ghent, a learning and innovation centre in Brussels, and a design for the International Olympic Committee Headquarters. Includes an interview with the architect by Sarah Whiting and essay by Philip Ursprung.
