Matthijs la Roi Architects shortlisted for a public sculpture competition in Belgium

Matthijs la Roi Architects in collaboration with Simone Tchonova have been shortlisted for a design competition for a public sculpture for the municipality of Erpe-Mere in Belgium. The design was shortlisted together with three other participants out of a selection of 56 entries.  The design consists out of a stone sculpture made of eight locally sourced stones from of the type: ‘Balegemse Stone’.  The site of the project is called: de Steenberg and refers to the historical function of the site, a quarry. The same type of stone of the sculpture was previously extracted from the exact site of the planned sculpture.
The stones would be shaped and finished through a combination of CNC and craft techniques. Each stone represents one of the eight towns that form the municipality of Erpe-Mere.
