Lucien Kroll

He (born Brussels, March 13, 1927) is a Belgian architect well-known for projects involving participation by the future users of the buildings. In the 1960s, Kroll worked with the Rwandan government to build housing using traditional materials and techniques. In the 1970s he became renowned for the socio-cultural infrastructures he created for the Medical Faculty of the Louvain University in Brussels. His vast repertoire also includes private homes, schools, universities, churches, monasteries and underground stations in Belgium and France.

  1. Lucien Kroll creates the building through the formation of different rectangles. The random clashing of different lines, both horizontal and vertical, makes the whole looks abstract while the walls, windows and porches create a pop out effect from the wall. The mixture of irregularity and simplicity forms a slight visual distortion. Also, Kroll must surely like warm colours or think that they suit his architectural work best. From all four of the pictures i can tell that Kroll has a passion in what he did as his works eludes a certain kind of happiness.
