Young Belgian architects obviously show a renewed approach to architecture. While the elder generation grew up in a booming economy in which there was time and money to endlessly study details, proportions and so to come to minimalistic design, the young ones are aware of nowadays needs. Lower budgets force them to approach projects with a fresh look. Among them Tom Verschueren and David Driesen, whose office dmvA has its seat in Mechelen. They achieve durability by respecting program, budget and context, and by displaying advanced ideas on the use of materials. dmvA is not focused on one particular style. They act like screenwriters, turn the program into a screenplay, spaces into sequences and so allow the building to each time tell another story. They don’t want to be profiled as mathematic theorists, but as designers whose motives are emotion, involvement, art and sex. Their work may be characterised as plastical, strongly detailed architecture in which maximalism has been accomplished in a minimalistic way.
