Heli take off!

Team BULK + BUREAU CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY + IRS + KARUUR + MISS MIYAGI wins the competition for the redevelopment of the fire station on the Helihavenlaan in Brussels, of which the Brussels-Capital Region wishes to investigate the programmatic possibilities.

MSI - SAU organized a competition for the survey into the future possibilities of the DBDMH buildings, fine examples of brutalist 1970s architecture, in order to organize their future transformation. In view of their strategic position, in different sectors of the Nord territory (Manhattan district, near the canal, Masui district), the site's transition is particularly important for the development of the entire Heliport site.

The seventeenth edition of the Architecture Biennale in Venice runs from 22 May to 21 November 2021 in Giardini, Arsenale and at various places in the city. The theme for the 2021 edition is "How will we live together?"

Építészfórum

Function/form/function – kindergarten & elementary school in Deurne, Belgium” Article on Kindergarten & elementary school Het Vliegertje on Építészfórum.hu (Hungarian).

The team at BULK architecten has managed to strike a balance between the constraints of a clean, modern architectural language and the looseness and cosiness that comes with the given function. This might not seem as a huge undertaking, but such a successful implementation as Het Vliegertje is rarely found. Contemporary school architecture, driven frequently by modernist pastiche, often forgets exactly who it is designing for. Whether this results in aesthetically or conceptually pleasing buildings, it only exposes the misdirection of the designers.
