The Lampens archive

The Architectural Detail

The thematic selection illustrates Lampens’ fascination with architectural detail. This plays a pivotal role throughout his oeuvre. Design sketches, exploratory drawings and architectural plans reveal how the development of the detail has a vital impact on the creative process of his architecture, from embryonic idea to completion.
