On the programme this week we’re joined by Sofie De Caigny, Director of VAi, the Flanders Architecture Institute.
The VAi is based in Antwerp – across two buildings – with gallery space and public programmes taking place in the International Arts Campus deSingel.
As well as their extensive public programme, every two years the institute produces the Flanders Architecture Review, a major publication presenting a generous selection of recently completed projects across Flanders and Brussels. Now in its 14th edition the review presents as snapshot of the architecture of a certain place and time, with an analysis of the trends and successes.
We spoke to Sofie last week down the line from Antwerp, where the VAi’s offices are slowly starting to re-open.
