Philippe Viérin wrote the book as an answer to the question of the In Flanders Field Museum in Ypres to reflect on the largest building campaign our country has ever known, the reconstruction after World War I.
His answer is a epistolary novel consisting of about twenty-five stories in which his great-grandfather plays an important role, but which also cover the work of noAarchitecten. An installation under the same name can be visited in the museum until the beginning of January 2021.
The book is available in bookshops from mid-July or can be ordered here (Public Space, Mechelen, 2020).
From the 14th of July, after being closed for two years, the Ensorhuis in Ostend is open again to public.

The visit to the former house of belgian painter James Ensor has been extended with a permanent exhibition about his life and work, presented in a collection of rooms, as well as an exhibition room that will host temporary exhibitions with and around the work of Ensor.
On June 22nd the Flanders Architectural Review nr. 14, When Attitude Takes Form has been published.

Beginning of July the first inhabitants and users have moved to the newly constructed center Coda in Wuustwezel. Coda provides specialised palliative care for terminal patients and support for their families. The new center houses a range of facilities of two day-care centres, several short-stay rooms, the hospice and a palliative care expertise centre. Coda was one of the pilot projects of ‘Invisible Care’, a research project published by the Vlaams Bouwmeester.
Together with AHA + EB, Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architecten, Sergison Bates architects & Boom Landscape, noAarchitecten has won the competition of Citygate II/Petite Île.
