luc deleu – “top office agency (Belgiium)

 

Luc Deleu is a Belgian architect and urban planner residing in Antwerp. In 1969 he completed his architectural degree, creating T.O.P. office[1] in 1970 to question the role of architecture and urbanism in the modern age. His utopian projects put emphasis on mobility instead of the immobility of real estate, focusing on using urban space in a more efficient and intensive manner. In 1980 he created the Orban Planning Manifesto,[1] which for the first time, places emphasis on the responsibilities of architecture and building on a global scale.
Notable projects include: Proposal to use existing rockets to fire (nuclear) waste at the sun (1975), School of Perspective and the Station Europa Centraal (1988-1989), VIP City[2] (1999-2004). In 2006 a new work called Urban Space insists on increasing population density without trying to define functions.
Since 2000, the work of Luc Deleu is more and more exhibited in contemporary art context (wikipedia)
