Multidisciplinary design and research

The lecture series of the MOME Architecture Institute presents outstanding national and international architects, designers, and thinkers, who will provide a glimpse into their work around the built environment. Our next speaker will be teacher at KU Leuven and associate of Rotor Stijn Colon.

Founded in 2005 and based in Brussels, Rotor is a multidisciplinary design and research organisation focusing on material flow and reuse. It seeks to foster dialogue on resources, waste, and obsolescence through research, exhibitions, conferences, and publications.

In addition to actively coordinating large-scale demolition operations, Rotor is also involved in architecture, interior design, and urban planning projects. In 2016, Rotor Deconstruction was founded, which specialises in the salvaging and trading of building components. Brussels-based Rotor and Rotor DC have over 20 employees.

Stijn Colon is an architect and researcher at Rotor, and has worked on design jobs, exhibitions, publications, as well as research and education projects as an expert. He is co-author of Ad Hoc Baroque, a soon-to-be-published book on the post-war reuse architecture of Marcel Raymaekers. Since 2020, he also teaches architecture at KU Leuven.

Further education credits for visiting the Architectural Matters lectures are available from the Chamber of Hungarian Architects. The talks are free and open to the public. For attendees collecting credits from the Chamber, prior registration is required.
