Orban Space, Luc Deleu - T.O.P. office
Extra City, Antwerp
15 September 2013 - 17 November 2013
Luc Deleu is one of Belgium’s most innovative and radical urbanist thinkers. Together with T.O.P. office, the architectural firm Deleu founded in 1970, the architect by training has developed an intriguing and consistent oeuvre, spanning more than four decades and constantly challenging the discipline of architecture to rise to its global-scale responsibilities.
This exhibition, curated by Wouter Davidts and Stefaan Vervoort in dialogue with T.O.P. office, focuses on Orban Space, the ‘research by design’ project initiated by Luc Deleu in 2006, aiming to expand current notions of public space to the scale of the earth, and recalculate urbanism as orbanism. Continuously updated, the project builds upon streams of spatial, sociological and economic data, suggesting alternative models of resource distribution to the totality of earth’s population.
