Geneva-based architects Leopold Banchini is a multidisciplinary research team exploring the frontiers of space shaping. Deliberately ignoring borders and embracing globality, it aims to expand the traditional definitions of project making using DIY culture and eclecticism as a means of emancipation.

Deeply rooted in architectural history, it is interested as well in contemporary popular cultures as in vernacular traditions and crafts. Addressing architecture as a form of social action, it places political and environmental considerations at the very heart of its practice.

The Lab will be framed with visits to Brussels-based innovative, architecture practice BC Architects and to the construction site of the ZIN Project, Belgium's biggest circular architecture project in the Brussels-North district, led by the internationally renowned architecture firm 51N4E.
