Flanders Architecture Institute (VAi) is organising a workshop series and lecture with a pop-up exhibition Intersections: Invisible in Architecture. The first workshop in this series is about the social and environmental costs of construction, (migrant) labour conditions and extraction practices.

Moderated by Ken De Cooman (BC Architects & Studies) the workshop will take place in Globe Aroma, Brussels on 21 March 2023, at 6.30pm.

  • Construction, at what cost?

  • Ken De Cooman is co-founder of BC Architects & Studies and BC Materials. With these companies, BC starts from architecture, over research and expertise and experiment, towards material production and contracting. As a hybrid office, BC is manoeuvring the boundaries of all these disciplines in a doers manner. Ken De Cooman holds a master’s in philosophy and architecture and is a candidate in psychology. He has published reflections in OASE and Domus; has (guest) taught at KULeuven, ULB-LaCambre, ETH Zurich and the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City development.
