In Practice organizes and supports conferences, lectures and exhibitions. Particularly, the "In Practice" conferences are articulated around a seminar for practising architects engaged in research and a lecture by architects unveiling one project through the lens of the process and the work documents. These lectures are followed by a conversation with a panel of critics, academics and peers.

LucAs Architecturebook #4 - Passion & Work

For LucAs—Architecturebook #4, text contribution
will explore two tracks.

PASSION. You are an actively practicing architect: which passion, which urgency drives your engagement in academics? You are a student : which passion, which urgency drives you through the demanding studios? From the exploration of unknown fields to the pragmatics of construction, from the generous sharing and the pleasure of inspiration, you are invited to formulate the causes and modalities of your engagement.
WORK. LucAs—Architecturebook #4 contains student and teacher’s work. Not only the beautiful final documents, but also the intriguing work documents that made the difference in the design process. You are invited to reflect on two documents: one work document and one final document. Stick close to the real documents, be descriptive and explorative.

Back from Japan - Sugiberry. Meaning - Exhibition

Johannes Berry (Sujiberry architects) participates to the exhibition "Back from Japan" at De Singel in Antwerp. As part of the theme ‘Back from Japan’, the VAi is showcasing the work of two young architectural firms who work out of Belgium and Japan. In the exhibition ‘Meaning’, SUGIBERRY searches for the architectural relationship between Japan and Flanders, by placing its own work alongside that of others. The bureau shows how an idea that adapts to a changing context – here the cultural exchange between Flanders and Japan – leads to new connections and layers of meaning. In SUGIBERRY’s design practice, everything is related to the human and the dialogue with the built environment. When a tree in a forest falls down and there is no one to hear it, does it then make a sound? According to SUGIBERRY, it does not.
