THE PROVOCATION OF THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE

Site: The Ghent Altarpiece also called the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb or The Lamb of God painted by the brothers Van Eyck in between 1430-1432

2012-2013

 

The design deals with the addition of a gothic tower to the series of towers in the painting of ‘The Mystic Lamb’ by the Van Eyck brothers (1432). While this provocative project questions the potential and the materialisation of the transition from life to death, it comes into conflict with the censorship imposed on architectural interventions in consecrated spaces. And it also comes up against the limits of making and drawing, which are essential actions in the pursuit of architecture.
