A practice of architects, an interior architecture firm, and an architectural photographer will together be presenting the Belgian contribution to the 2016 Venice Biennale. Architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, interdoorzon interieurarchitecten and Filip Dujardin—self-styled as the Bravoure (Bravura) team—will explore "what craftsmanship can mean during a period of economic scarcity" as, according to the curatorial team, "dealing with scarcity demands a high level of precision."

Commissioned by the Flanders Architecture Institute (VAi), which coordinates the Belgian entry to the Venice Biennale every four years on a rotating basis with the French community, the show will exhibit fragments of thirteen representative projects from thirteen Flemish architects by means of 1:1 replicas. According to De Vylder, "the fragment is exhibited as it really is. At the same time, it is cut out of its context, which ultimately gives it a new dimension."
