EXPO 2024

In the autumn of 2023, the former ‘Officer’s bar’, central to Asiat Park, started shifting its form from an easily forgettable and overlooked building into a remarkable gesamtkunstwerk. The process of redesigning it sprung from the creative geniuses of the experimental collective Stand Van Zaken in collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Serban Ionescu. 

Stand Van Zaken consists of Stefanie Everaert and Caroline Lateur (together known as Doorzon Interieurarchitecten) and Ghent-based visual artist Theo de Meyer. Collaboration plays an important role in their practice as well as circular material use as construction principle.

Serban Ionescu (b. 1984, Ploiesti, RO) grew up in New York City. His work encompasses sculpture, painting, design and architecture. With his distinctive lines stemming from his drawing practice, vibrant use of colour and cartoonish gestures, Serban imbues his works with anthropomorphic forms and a constant intuitive play with shifting scale and form.

This project was made possible thanks to the generous support of provincie Vlaams-Brabant, het Vlaamse Randfonds and Duvel Moortgat.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
