Work from Habitat.
“Our countryside (in Belgium as well as in many other western countries) is monopolized by one specific type of house called ‘clé sur porte’ (turnkey) (def:Urban prefab cluster of similar forms implanted in the landscape without any effort of integration).
The cycle ‘Habitat’ throws a look at this type of ‘architecture’. The concept of protection and stereotyped block is pushed to its extremes (similar to our withdrawl into ourselves and out formatted lives).” – Xavier Delory
