Vincent Van Duysen

The Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen offers tactility as one of his themes. Design that captures the act of touching is characteristic of his approach as an architect who has designed many interiors and pieces of furniture. He uses many materials, including plaster, wood, steel, glass, and concrete. The simple, pure proportions and play of light and shadow in his work are born from these materials and from his sensitive handing of details.After graduating in architecture from the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas in Ghent, he moved to Italy and worked in interior design. In 1990 he returned to Antwerp, near his native town, and opened his own studio. He works on a global stage that is now expanding to include the United States and Middle East as well as Europe. In this issue we introduce five of his important early works, generously illustrated with photos. (a+u)
