ARCH+ FEATURES 40
According to Kersten Geers and David Van Severen from the Brussel architecture office Office kgdvs, the architecture's value has been degraded to a marketable design object. Paradoxically, the market dictates differentiations that end up forming an increasingly uniform style. For architecture to hold its claim to cultural content within this market-minded field, common values are now needed more than ever. Office kgdvs rise to this challenge with the clarity of their architectural elements on the one hand, and ambiguity of their intentions on the other.
