A+ Architecture and Bozar are pleased to invite you to the thematic double lecture 'Building with local materials', with Martin Rauch and BC architects & studies & materials. The lecture will take place on April 2, 2024 and will take place at a different location than usual: at Auditorium 490 - Royal Museums of Fine Arts (Museumstraat 5, Brussels).

Originally from Austria, Martin Rauch has always been passionate about using natural materials in his projects. Trained as a ceramist, he specialized in building with clay and founded his own studio Lehm Ton Erde in 1999. Since 2010, Martin Rauch has been sharing his expertise as honorary professor of the UNESCO Chair of "Earthen Architecture. He will present a number of emblematic projects, including his own house in Schlins, designed together with Roger Boltshauser.

Like Martin Rauch, the Brussels-based practice BC architects & studies & materials has been working since 2009 with an integrated approach that includes all aspects of the building process, from design to research and the production of specific materials. BC will present the Woodstock project, a self-sufficient private house in the Ardennes that hovers over the bank of a river built entirely with local, natural materials and using innovative techniques. After both have introduced their projects, Martin Rauch and BC will enter into conversation.
