1. Lucien Kroll

        Bio
        Lucien Kroll is an architect and urban designer. He studied at La Cambre in Brussels, learning that architecture produces civilisation and not ‘machines’. Kroll chose for a participatory practice, designing schemes that exclusively express the complexity, the organic organisation and the social life of inhabitants. One of his most famous buildings is la Mémé, the medical quarter of the Catholic University of Louvain, designed in close collaboration with the students. Kroll was in charge of designing the Academy of Expression in Utrecht, 150 dwellings in Haarlem, Ecolonia in Alphen-aan-den-Rijn, etcetera. In France he has realised research missions, social dwellings and schools in, among other places, Paris and Belfort. His work has been elaborated upon in numerous lectures and publications.

        Editors: David Peleman, Jantje Engels, Christophe Van Gerrewey

        “It is brilliant people say brilliant
        while it’s mere dilettantism
        What they touch becomes tasteless
        always the most obvious
        superficialities
        even the most exalted starts to stink”
        — Thomas Bernhard, Der Schein trügt, 1984
