Rotor is a Brussels-based collective that studies the flows in industry and construction. For this lecture two of its members will reflect on the role of the found object in their methodology as designers and curators, and talk about their long-lasting efforts to stimulate re-use in the building industry. 

Lionel Devlieger trained as an architect and engineer in Ghent and Rome. In 2006 he joined Rotor where he is now researcher and project manager. Since 2010 he has been visiting professor at institutions including Ghent University, UC Berkeley and the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.

Maarten Gielen started his career at the age of 15, selling decorative items and objects found at scrap merchants and flea markets. In 2005, he established Rotor where he currently works as designer, manager and researcher. 

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
