OFFICEU architects for urbanity is a Brussels based design office with a fundamentally urban design attitude. Through the concept of ‘urbanity’ they aim to provide solutions to complex social and ecological challenges.

Acknowledging the broad societal responsibility of the architect - beyond the creation of beautiful and functional buildings - OFFICEU architects for urbanity aims to create projects with a societal relevance. Within the spatial, programmatic and economic constraints, they look for unexpected but always simple solutions. Rather than focusing solely on aesthetic details, OFFICEU architects for urbanity want to create a strong spatial framework that places social interaction and human experience at the forefront.

A 'sustainable' project is much more than a well-insulated building. It’s a project that fits logically into its context, interacts with it and makes a meaningful contribution to it. A project that can evolve in time, outlive its current use and can always maintain its relevance. A project that is inclusive and encourages social interaction. A project that questions its own need to build, and consciously uses new materials and resources.

Three key concepts - themes that all contribute to a truly sustainable building - are elaborated and illustrated in the exhibition, using four very different projects from OFFICEU architects' oeuvre, arranged in a matrix that can be read both horizontally and vertically. This matrix forms a toolbox, expandable in all four directions, and serves as an invitation to an open and wide-ranging dialogue about the role of buildings and architecture in our world, now and in the future.
