With a complete photographic shooting by Juan Rodríguez – made for this publication – and an interview lead by Carlos Quintans, Archives 3 collects eleven profusely illustrated recent projects of the architecture office de Vylder Vinck Taillieu that has been recently honnored with the Silver Lion at the 16th edition of the Venice Biennale 2018.
The architects Jan de Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Taillieu are key figures in the current Belgian architecture scene. With separate practices since the beginning of the millennium, and common training at Stéphane Beel architecten, in 2010 they create the office in its current configuration. His method of work plays and breaks with all the conventions related to style, function-program, dimension, typologies or uses of materials in architecture. Proving that it is possible to create a large building based on repetition, redesign or the elaboration of a detail, whose seriation, repetition or singularization becomes the protagonist of the building.
