    El Croquis 126 is a comprehensive monograph on the work of Belgian architect Xaveer De Geyter, covering his work from 1996 to 2006. This era saw De Geyter establish himself as one of the most innovative and influential voices in contemporary architecture, with his signature approach to urbanism and social housing.

    Urbanism and Social Housing:

    De Geyter’s work is characterized by its focus on urbanism and social housing. He is committed to creating cities that are both livable and equitable, and he is particularly interested in the potential of architecture to improve the lives of people living in poverty. De Geyter often works on large-scale urban projects, and he is known for his ability to create innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges of urban growth.

    Key Projects:

    • Zwarte Zaag, Ghent, Belgium (2004): This social housing project is a major example of De Geyter’s commitment to urbanism and social housing. The project is located in a former industrial area, and it consists of a mix of housing, shops, and public spaces. The project is designed to create a vibrant and inclusive community.

    • Canalside, Bruges, Belgium (2006): This urban renewal project is another major example of De Geyter’s work.

The project is designed to revitalize the area and create a more sustainable urban environment.

    • New Library of Ghent, Belgium (2005): This library is a striking example of De Geyter’s architectural style. The building is made of glass and steel, and it features a series of curving forms that create a sense of movement. The library is designed to be a welcoming and accessible space for all.

    Beyond Form and Materiality:

    El Croquis 126 goes beyond showcasing De Geyter’s stunning architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of his work, exploring his engagement with contemporary architecture, urbanism, and social justice.
