Nordic Architecture on Tour

Coming to Brussels

A series of lectures on the Nordic way of architecture
Final event in Brussels

The six-part lecture series "Nordic Architecture on Tour" will end at CIVA in Brussels on 12.-13.12. with two evenings featuring films and panel discussions. Leading themes of the lecture series will be revisited and the possibility of Nordic architecture serving as inspiration to its Belgian counterpart will be discussed

December 12 - Nature in Culture  - 19.00-21.00

The theme for the first evening is Nature in Culture (screening of HARPA (2011) - from dream to reality – a documentary about the construction of the Concert and Conference Hall in Reykjavik – and Norwegian Detours ( 2012) - about something as rare and spectacular as contemporary architecture outside of the big cities).

Roel De Ridder, will reflect on the question of how nature can be an intrinsic part of architectural creations.

Denis Dujardin is a Flemish nomadic consultant on Landscaping and Urbanism.
He is designing a wide range of diverse projects in very different contexts.He teaches “Paysage” and “Lieux d’expression” at the architecture department of the UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain) at Tournai (Belgium). He lectures as well at different European schools and art institutes. His projects are featured by an emphasis on feasibility and invisibility. Hence the aspect of dissimulation: dissimulating the intervention in a theatrical manner.
The role of the designer is being put backwards, in favor of pragmatical use.
Where the imagery towards the context , is dealt with, in a reticent and integrated
manner. He also writes essays on art, more specifically on painting. His projects are to be found in Belgium, France, Holland, Luxemburg, Germany and China.

Swedish permaculture architect, Peter Hallén, shall moderate the discussion.

Panel Participants :

Roel De Ridder, PhD Master of Architecture, researcher at Hasselt University and teacher at KU Leuven, artistic director of Architectuurwijzer.
