Towards a vertical architecture
Cercle Royal des Beaux Arts de Liège
June 29th – September 1st 2017
Opening on Thursday 29th of June at 6:30 pm

Real Estate Architecture explores the legacy of architectures built by private developers during the 1960s and 1970s. Through workshops and lectures, publications and exhibitions, it aims at revealing the transformation potentials of these ubiquitous developments. Rooted in the contexts of three different Belgian cities, the research project will reconsider three specific architecture typologies: the apartment building, the office building and the retail building.
Real Estate Architecture was founded and is lead by Thaïs de Roquemaurel, Guillaume Joachim, Martin Dumont and Benoit Burquel.
