Publication of project Melaan in magazine Bouwen met Baksteen
We are proud to announce our publication in the magazine 'Bouwen met baksteen' 2/2017 nr. 158, pp. 2-3. It talks about building typologies, which encourage social interference. On this peculiar triangular shaped site in the historical centre of Mechelen, it's all about the balance between exposing and disguising.
