Groeninge Abbey Art and Exhibition Space in Kortrijk

Barozzi Veiga 


The Spain-based practice of Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga – in collaboration with the local partners Tab Architects and the heritage architects Koplamp Architecten – has won the competition to transform the historical Groeninge Abbey complex in the Flemish city of Kortrijk into a center for temporary art exhibitions and public activities. In dialogue with the existing architecture, the project includes a new pavilion that seeks to mold a recognizable, visitor-drawing identity.
