Flemish architecture is currently enjoying increased international attention. Architects from Flanders and Brussels are often invited to prestigious industry events around the world to present their work.

This growing international recognition reflects the significant work of a number of Flemish practices in contributing to the emergence of a vital culture of design and research.


As a contribution to the the International Showcase and Open House 2012 Flanders House will be gathering writers and architects of various backgrounds and experience to discuss the importance of their national input to the state of architecture in the European region.



Speakers will include Tony Fretton (Tony Fretton Architects), Christophe Grafe (Flemish Architectural Institute), Ellis Woodman (Executive Editor of Building Design and architecture critic of the Daily Telegraph) and Flemish architects Christian Kieckens, Dirk Somers and Marie-José Van Hee.




Flanders House, 1a Cavendish Square, W1G 0LD22

22 September 13.30–18.30
