Lecture Anne Mie Depuydt

Stationsstraat 90
Warp members:

West Flemish architect Anne-Mie Depuydt founded the architectural firm UApS in Paris with Erik Van Daele, a resident of Sint-Niklaas. She now runs this firm alone, and with it she realized most of the Olympic village. The Saint-Ouen district is a banlieue that could use an upgrade.

What used to be a deprived neighborhood must now serve for the Olympic Village, where more than 14,500 athletes and their entourage will stay for weeks in - let's face it - altogether not very luxurious apartments. The Olympics begin on July 26 and end on August 11. It will not only serve as a home for the Olympic athletes, but the Paralympic athletes will also find a home there this summer. After the Olympics, these flats will serve as permanent housing or offices, as suggested before construction. Ecologically, it is said, that the entire site meets the strictest standards of the future. For example, there is no air conditioning in the buildings, but natural ventilation is provided.

Depuydt will speak at length about the architectural and social challenges and her sources of inspiration, many of which she finds in the art world.
