A rigorous and analytical approach, a frontal and inclusive aesthetic. The Belgian architect Bernard Dubois blurs the lines between genres. Drawing references in different periods, he creates coherence and brings together what the history of architecture opposes.
Bernard Dubois studied photography before he graduated as an architect from La Cambre in 2009. He worked, for a time, on an urban planning competition for the European quarter of Brussels with a former associate of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA).
In 2014, shortly after founding his architecture firm, Dubois was co-curator of the Belgian Pavillion at the Venice Biennale, with the project Interiors. Notes and Figures. He continues to carry out an active reflection on subjects that are close to his heart, notably as co-director of the AA Visiting School Brussels since 2016.
Whatever the nature of the project, the vocation of Bernard Dubois’ architecture is to be informed, contextual and fundamentally cultural.
