    El Croquis 125 is a comprehensive monograph on the work of Flemish architect Stéphane Beel, covering his work from 1992 to 2005. This era saw Beel establish himself as one of the most important representatives of the so-called “still generation” of Flemish architects, known for their subtle and sensitive approach to integrating contemporary architecture within existing surroundings.

    Beel’s Architectural Approach:

    • Subtle Integration: Beel’s work is characterized by its careful consideration of context and history. He avoids imposing new buildings on existing landscapes, instead seeking to create a dialogue between old and new, familiar and strange. This results in architecture that is both contemporary and respectful of its surroundings.

    • Materiality and Light: Beel is a master of materiality, using simple materials like brick, concrete, and wood in unexpected ways to create textured and nuanced surfaces. He also plays with light and shadow to create dramatic effects within his spaces.

    • Program and Function: Beel’s buildings are always carefully designed to meet the needs of their users. He is particularly interested in creating spaces that are both functional and flexible, adaptable to changing needs over time.

    Key Projects:

    • House in Houthalen (2004): This striking house, nestled amongst trees, features a curving concrete form that blends seamlessly with the natural landscape.
    • Villa DF in K (2003): This minimalist villa, clad in dark wood, sits on a hillside overlooking a valley, its simple form echoing the surrounding contours.
    • Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent (2004): This major museum expansion features a series of interconnected pavilions that respect the historic fabric of the city center while providing modern exhibition spaces.

    • Roger Raveel Museum, Machelen aan de Leie (1997): This museum dedicated to the work of Belgian artist Roger Raveel is a thoughtful reinterpretation of a former farmhouse, incorporating existing elements into the new design.

    Beyond Form and Materiality:

    El Croquis 125 goes beyond showcasing Beel’s stunning architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of his work, exploring his engagement with contemporary architectural discourse, the relationship between architecture and landscape, and the importance of creating sustainable and responsible buildings.

    A Legacy of Influence:

    Stéphane Beel’s work has had a profound impact on contemporary architecture, inspiring a generation of architects to approach their projects with sensitivity, context awareness, and a deep understanding of materials and light. El Croquis 125 serves as a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in exploring the rich and nuanced world of Beel’s architecture.
