Programming Dutch-speaking architects in Liège (Galerie Opéra) and French-speaking architects in Antwerp (deSingel) stimulates dialogue between the two cultures. ACROSS departs from the observation that there is a lack of exchange and dialogue between the French-speaking and Dutch-speaking architectural cultures in Belgium. The programme strives to fill this gap and provide a platform for young architectural firms to reflect on their practice and the context in which they work.

After two successful editions in 2015 and 2016, the Belgian journal A+ Architecture, in collaboration with the Flanders Architecture Institute and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Liège, will once again organise the lecture series ACROSS in 2018. Four young French-speaking offices will take to the floor in Antwerp, while four Dutch-speaking practices will speak in Liège. New this year is that each participant will be introduced by a senior architect from the other language region.

Each year, a local community service project that makes a big difference for a community at large is designed and built, collaborating with local communities, multidisciplinary experts and building professionals.

UHaselt Building Beyond Borders

The postgraduate frames the opportunity for students and professionals to enrich skills by exploring and practising sustainable architecture abroad. In a living-lab set-up in an unfamiliar context with its challenges and opportunities, new approaches and processes towards innovative architectural solutions are experienced. They contribute, now and later, to the Sustainability Development Goals, and enhance competencies in Global Citizenship.
