PRIMARY TALKS is a lecture series initiated by the architecture master studio PRIMARY STRUCTURE in the Faculty of Architecture.
Within the context of the studio we invite speakers form different disciplines who’s work is relevant within the theme. The focus of the lecture series is on the working method, the way the work comes to being.
This year’s case study is about the future of the E17 viaduct in Ghent. This giant structure is a relict of the 70’s and severly damaged by heavy traffic. It is currently being restored for the last time. Recently 8 alternative scenarios have been put forward for debate. Although the infrastructural interventions in the different scenarios have been calculated, the impact on the city and it’s urban tissue has not to yet been investigated. We will focus on the architectural and ecological potential of each of the scenarios.
