BC materials shows the result of the circular production of building materials out of loam excavated on building sites in Brussels. The end products will be for sale through a newly established cooperative. During a workshop on building with loam at CIVA from 1 to 5 April 2019, 30 university students and 18 professionals (architects, contractors, engineers, etc.) created different prototypes and samples, which are on show in the exhibition.
“The Act of Building”
26 April – 2 June, 2019
Rue de l’Ermitage Kluis 55, Brussels
The act of building is act and discourse. It is the complex effort of a temporary association to create an infrastructure of its own. For this purpose the architects of BC call on actors from different backgrounds and a range of skills, and use different materials and technologies. The act of building has an impact and is at the same time a manifestation of values and ideas, which grew out of a broad network around a specific project. Building has a transformative power, driven by action, narrative and result.
