book | Lucien Engels : architecture art design
For a long time, Lucien Engels (1928) was a well-kept secret in the history of Belgian architecture. His oeuvre was unknown until it was discovered at the end of the twentieth century, long after his retirement as an architect. This luxurious book presents a wide selection of houses, public buildings, furniture and paintings by the dissident modernist Lucien Engels, whose work has since become a bestseller on the international design market. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs, with a long monographic essay by Geert Bekaert and shorter texts by Mil De Kooning, Maarten Liefooghe and Christophe Van Gerrewey, this book provides an entrance to the wonderful world of one the most sincere and surprising exponents of modern Belgian architecture.
