HOW NOT TO DEMOLISH A BUILDING – IN FIVE CHAPTERS
Freek Persyn graduated from the Sint Lucas School of Architecture in Brussels, having followed one academic year in Ireland at the Dublin Institute of Technology. Very soon after graduating he established 51N4E along with Peter Swinnen and Johan Anrys. 51N4E is a Brussels-based international practice that contributes, through means of design, to social and urban transformation. The range of activities comprise architectural design, concept development and strategic spatial transformations. In 2004 51N4E was awarded the Rotterdam Maaskant Award for Young Architects.
