New Publication / WTC Tower Teachings

‘WTC Tower Teachings’ is a pile of texts on the one and a half years of WTC24, the temporary setting of the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture at the 24th floor of the WTC complex in Brussels. It was a great period that allowed us to reflect upon architectural and urban production in Brussels while inhabiting its biggest trauma and monitor the current ambitions to reactivate the North Quarter. It also allowed us to reflect upon architecture education, staying at a bare office tower floor, without the typical school apparatus of partition walls, auditorium seats and back office rooms, and realising somehow the dream of what one has called a ‘publicness of education’. The book brings together contributions by professors, students (some of them former students by now), participants and stakeholders.
