Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu have built a solid work ranging from reform of housing and family houses to public and institutional buildings. The studio formed by Jan De Vylder (1968), Inge Vinck (1973) and Jo Taillieu (1971) belongs to the new generation of Belgian architects who has done a generational change in Belgian architecture, becoming one of the most interesting national architectures the current scene.
They became internationally known from various reforms carried out almost entirely in the Flemish city of Ghent: Verzameld Werk gallery, the Twiggy store, or houses 43, Rot-Ellen-Berg and Rampelken. His work cleverly combines respect for preexistences with a lyrical way of understanding architecture as DIY, as a construction inside buildings in a kind of game of Russian dolls. In his projects there are strange games of transparency, reflection (by using reflective materials), irony (with the use of local materials and techniques), optical illusions of duplicating and copying existing buildings ... and all this results in an extremely personal architecture.
