Jan De Vylder

Jan De Vylder and Inge Vinck are cofounders of jan de vylder architecten (2008), architecten de vylder vinck taillieu (2010), and most recently, of architecten jan de vylder inge vinck (A JDVIV).

A JDVIV explores ideas launched at ETH Zurich in the studio series titled Universum Carrousel Journey (UCJ): Universum as a world to be created. Carrousel as ever ongoing. Journey as an exploration.

A JDVIV/UCJ is a multidisciplinary practice in which making and thinking are deeply embedded. New horizons are being explored internationally and in research, and profound positions are being taken, both in the firm's interest in drawing and also in debating the essence of urgency today.
