AgwA

Description
AgwA proposes functional and straightforward projects answering to contextual, human, programmatic and economical
issues through unexpected solutions. However, simplicity, efficiency and sustainability on both ecological, social and
economical levels are central to AgwA’s work. Avoiding the temptation and superficiality of «contemporary aesthetics»,
or by the ease of ready-made ideas, AgwA puts an important effort on the understanding of the fundamental issues of
each project. To (re)formulate the problem correctly is an important step towards its solution.
The architectural work of the office is increasingly acclaimed by the critics. AgwA took part in various exhibitions
and its work is being published in the Belgian and international specialised press. As a consequence of this and of the
involvement of the partners, AgwA is actively teaching and researching at various universities, principally a the Louvain
School of Polytechnics (UCL) and at the Hogeschool voor Wetenschap en Kunst Sint Lucas in Brussels and Ghent, with
PhD ongoing at the UCL and RMIT (Melbourne).
Besides its strictly architectural and planning practices, AgwA also proposes architectural and technical consulting
services for clients such as Tractebel/Technum (Suez) in IBA. The office is fully capable of managing complex teams
with multiple professional stakeholders, while preserving high conceptual and architectural value.
