Located in a neighborhood at a strategic entry point towards Evere, one of communes, the project itself includes all the components of the city at a smaller scale.  More images and architects’ description after the break.

Market Hall in Ghent / Marie-José Van Hee + Robbrecht & Daem, by Hufton + Crow

© Hufton + Crow

The Marie-José Van Hee + Robbrecht & Daem designed Market Hall in Ghent reinstates the presence of old urban areas that had become unrecognizable. As an urban interior, the inside embraces the passer-by with a dual modulated wooden ceiling, whose small windows scatter light inwards. The exterior, the entire building in fact, seems to assume a respectful role relative to the nobler historic stone buildings.

We have previously brought you 
images of the project, but these latest images by Hufton + Crow truly capture the experience and highlight the project’s materials and principles. A complete gallery of their photos can be viewed after the break.

Naves Temporary Pavilion Proposal / Appareil


Designed by Appareil, their proposal for Naves, a temporary pavilion for the city of , Capital of Culture in 2015, addresses a contextual relationship to the gothic surroundings as an exploration on lightness and transparency. Inspired by this historical context, this project explores structural and material logics to revisit the gothic arch; the ‘curve’ is examined as a bending element caught within a woven collaborative structure of glass fiber tubes, in which the use of compression is exchanged by the one of tension for the building to achieve maximum lightness. More images and architects’ description after the break.
