The December 2019 issue of a+u is our first monograph dedicated to the work of Kersten Geers and David Van Severen’s Brussels-based studio, OFFICE. Since its founding in 2002, OFFICE has thoughtfully produced an iterative body of work that serves to both document the studio’s knowledge and function as open systems in an increasingly complex world. This monograph traces the lineage of 25 OFFICE projects, that span from early spatial experiments in housing to recent larger works with urban implications, while offering their ideas up for interpretation.
