Description

Five well-known graduates of the class of 1974 of the St Lucas Institute in Ghent, Marie-Jose Van Hee, Paul Robbrecht and Hilde Daem, Christian Kieckens, and Marc Dubois, are considered leading architects of their generation. Their professional careers and legacy have been of great importance to the development of Flemish architecture. In their early works and writings, they established a distinct architectural language, rooted in historical knowledge and with a reflection to art and craftsmanship. Architecture was singled out as a spatial phenomenon with an autonomous logic grounded in inhabitation and experience. This generation represents a significant turn toward architectural autonomy in Flanders, which resonated with similar international developments in the late 1970s. Moreover, they played a decisive role in the emancipation and professionalization of architectural culture in Flanders.
