Adrien Verschuere, the founder of Brussels-based architectural bureau Baukunst, has just given a preview of his company’s exhibition, set to open on Wednesday and run until January 5th at Bozar. The exhibition is called ‘Performance and Performativity’.

What makes this exhibition particularly interesting is the philosophy behind the firm’s view of architecture and its interconnection with the world in which we live. Adrien Verschuere spoke of the firm’s fascination with other disciplines such as cinema, art and form, and with the perpetual exchange between domains. He explained that he firm’s name is a mixture of Bau (build) and Kunst (art). He thus sees the firm’s work as being at the border between architecture, science, technology and form.

In particular, the exhibition’s models and images help to ‘make visible that which is normally invisible’ – the workings, the mechanics of objects. The firm likes to look at the way different things are put together, and sees architecture as a ‘frame for life’.
