Freek Persyn – Double or Nothing

Lecture date: 2011-10-04

As part of the exhibition, the lecture will focus on five topics which highlight aspects of the work of 51N4E. This will be done using elements on show at the AA, intertwined with indepth explanations of some recent projects and more general reflections on the ambition of 51N4E.

Freek Persyn established the practice of 51N4E, together with Peter Swinnen and Johan Anrys, and combined his partnership with freelance work for Xaveer de Geyter Architects until 2003, one year before 51N4E was awarded the Rotterdam Maaskant Award for Young Architects. Parallel to his professional activities at 51N4E, he has been assistant professor at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Ghent, as visiting critic and studio master at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam and currently as visiting professor at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Switzerland. He lectures and sits on juries in various institutes both in Belgium and abroad.
