Chirs Lai will explain his interventions in several Urban Villages in the city of Shenzhen China. His practice shows how renovation in extremely difficult practical and political circumstances can be successful.
D-OFFICE is founded by architects from the Netherlands and Hong Kong. They are engaged in the practices of architecture and urban planning in its broadest sense. Driven by criticality, suspicion, curiosity and fascination, they try to approach the work from alternative perspectives, and be liberated from clichés and dogmas.
The GOING PUBLIC program of the Faculty of Architecture is a series of lectures, exhibitions and publications organized throughout the year highlighting certain themes and topics that are important within each of the 4+1 Engagements: Urban Cul-tures, Mediating Tactics, Craftsmanship, Legacy and the Brussels Way.
This lecture is part of the URBAN CULTURES engagement that will focus in the academic year 2019-2020: on Housing.
