CENTRAL office for architecture and urbanism

CENTRAL is an architecture and urban planning office based in Brussels. CENTRAL was founded in 2015 by four partners who gained their experience respectively in Belgian and foreign offices (XDGA, BevkPerovi?, B-architects, AUC, V+). Today, Radim Louda, Paul Mouchet and Valentin Piret are together developing a practice where they explore the blurred boundaries between the different scales of the architectural discipline. The young office is experiencing a growing recognition in the field with projects characterized by a systemic approach to architecture, the city and the territory at different scales. In addition, CENTRAL is active in the cultural and academic sectors. Indeed, they have participated on several occasions in international exhibitions such as the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Biennale of Architecture and Landscape of Ile-de-France (BAP) or the International Biennale of Rotterdam (IABR). They regularly give lectures and workshops in several European universities and teach at La Cambre-Horta in Brussels and at ENSA in Versailles.
