Act of Building - 06/07/2018

We are very proud that our house in Tienen is published at the international Exhibition of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.  

Act of Building by BC Architecture & Studies at Arsenale Biennale of Venice 2018  

The act of building is at once action and narrative. It is the complex effort of a timely community to erect its infrastructure, running across classes and skill sets, across materials and technologies. It
generates an impact and expresses values and ideas in a wide network around a specific project. The act of building contains the power of change through action, story and result.  

At BC architects & studies, we believe that, in order to have a positive impact on society through the discipline of architecture, we not only need to focus on the design of its infrastructure but will also want to redesign the process of achieving the infrastructure. We’ll need to experiment within the act of building and with the role each member of a community plays in it. For us, a narrow definition of ‘the professional architect’ no longer suffices; we venture into material production, contracting, story telling, knowledge transfer, community organization – and all of this influences our design approach.  

Hence, we interpret freespace as what we create for ourselves and others during the act of building. It is a different way of construction, where roles shift, experiment happens, communities engage. A freespace allows for the emergence of a narrative which influences our ideas and perceptions of our surrounding spaces.  

Architectural form in the practice of BC evolves from allowing the freespace of materials, people an stories to be. As such, BC architects creates simple, functional, and logic architecture, as a mould to receive the actions and narratives of the building community.
