V+ architecture documents on five projects: Exhibition in NancyWallonia-Brussels Architectures will present the exhibition V+ architecture documents on five projects at the Ecole nationale supérieure d'architecture of Nancy (France) from February 6th till March 24th 2017. A lecture is organised on February 28th at 6 PM.
This first monographic exhibition to be devoted to the architectural practice of Vers plus de bien-être has been co-produced by the A+ Architecture in Belgium, Bozar and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. It focuses on five of their 2014-2015 projects. This exhibition concentrates on projects that are on the drawing board or in course of construction. Models, installations, plans, photographs, and videos highlight the key aspects of each project and reveal the practice's distinctive features, such as rethinking the requirements of a project, coming to terms with the existing context, and experimenting with the limits of the discipline of architecture. Bearing witness to the importance of collaborative work, V+ 2014-2015 also shows contributions by Simon Boudvin, Maxime Delvaux, Rotor, Loïc Vanderstichelen, and Jean-Paul Jacquet, among others. More than a retrospective, this exhibition takes you behind the scenes of major public projects.
An exhibition as a tool for reflection
By concentrating on ongoing projects from 2014–2015, the exhibition seeks to serve as an instrument of reflection for the ongoing practice within the firm. The projects realized for the exhibition have therefore ideally the dual status of exhibition objects and actual tools for the project. This makes it possible to combine the production of the project and its ulterior communication, and to produce an exhibition that is not a sublimation of, but a critical incursion into, the realization of the architectural project.
The five projects presented are- Mode and Design Center (MAD), Brussels- Water tower, Ghlin- Phénix 5, film and image centre, Charleroi- Folklore Museum, Mouscron- Fine Arts Museum, Verviers
The catalogue of the exhibition is entitled ‘V+ architecture documents on five projects'
