University Library, Faculty of Engineering and Architecture
OFFICE KGDVS
Ghent, Belgium

OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen’s University Library for the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Ghent has been aptly described by the practice as a “pavilion-like piece of furniture” inserted into an existing 19th century Physics Hall.

The Commons
Breathe Architecture
Melbourne, Australia

The Commons, by Breathe Architecture, is situated in East Brunswick, six kilometers from Melbourne’s CBD. Clad in a chevron-patterned façade, the building is a raw and captivating piece of architecture. It’s also the prototype for a new development model, called Nightingale, which aims to transform the way that apartment buildings are financed and designed in Australia. It sits in stark contrast to current housing models, which remain unaffordable and conservative in their ambitions.
