Collected writings by Geert Bekaert

Since 2007, at the department of architecture & urban planning, the publication of the collected writings (in Dutch) of the Belgian architecture critic Geert Bekaert (1928) is an ongoing project. Mid-eighties, already the two first volumes were published, edited by Mil De Kooning and Herman Stynen. Between 2008 and 2012 the next 7 volumes were published, edited by Christophe Van Gerrewey and Mil De Kooning.

The result is a serie of books, containing almost 650 texts and more than 4000 pages. At the end of 2011 an English anthology was published, edited by Christophe Van Gerrewey: ‘Rooted in the Real. Writings on Architecture by Geert Bekaert’, collecting mostly recent monographical texts by Bekaert, as well as some general essays.
