    When architect Michel Jaspers discovered this full city block, which had been left vacant for decades and fallen into disrepair, he conceived to transform it into what the Espace Jacqmotte is today: probably the first large-scale mixed-use complex in the heart of the city. The aim was to provide a mix of functions, thereby fulfilling the needs of various different occupants and visitors.

    Most American suburban homes have more walls than people want. There are two types of walls in most homes: those that carry weight (bearing walls) and those that don't (nonbearing walls).

    Removing walls that carry weight means that you have to have beams and columns to carry that load down through the home to the ground. Walls that act only as curtains can simply be pulled back and removed.

    Talk with Balthazar Korab long enough, and a consistent narrative emerges — one of a life and career replete with intriguing contradictions. A photographer with no formal training, he first aspired to be a painter but instead studied architecture, and prefers to be known as “an architect who makes pictures rather than a photographer who is knowledgeable about architecture.” (Published 2012.1205)
