1. Rotor

        Bio
        Rotor is a collective of people with a shared interest in material flows in industry and construction, founded in 2005. On a practical level, Rotor handles the conception and realization of design and architectural projects. Through publications, lectures, exhibitions and other media, on the other hand, they also develop critical positions on design, material resources, waste and reuse. After a series of mostly Brussels-based projects, Rotor was appointed in 2010 to curate the Belgian pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. More recently the collective curated and designed ‘OMA/Progress’, an overview of the work of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture at the Barbican Art Gallery in London in 2011. Rotor is currently preparing an upscale of building materials reuse practices in the Brussels Region; this project is a commission by the Brussels Institute for Environmental Management.
