Philippe Samyn: architecture and engineering 1990-2000
Philippe Samyn is widely recognised as Belgium's most well-known architectural and engineering office. Over many years he has made a name for himself with his innovative constructions using steel and glass, and his ecologically optimized glass dome made of wood and glass at the Walloon forestry centre in Marche-en-Famenne gained much acclaim. Projects such as a research centre for steel construction in Gent, the M & G K Laboratories in Venafro, Italy or a footbridge in Kortrijk, Belgium are all examples of Samyn's successful synthesis of engineering skills and architectural aesthetics. In this monograph the renowned architectural critic Marc Dubois portrays approximately 18 of the most interesting buildings and projects to come from this office.
