In this exhibition architecture photographer Filip Dujardin represents two of the most important projects by 51N4E, the TID Tower in Tirana and the C-Mine in Genk, from a new and unusual point of view.

Brussels, 51N4E - Double or Nothing exhibition French critic Dominique Boudet, editor-in-chief of the French architecture magazine AMC, was asked to take a critical look at the work of 51N4E, from their early projects on paper to their latest constructions in Belgium and other parts of the world.
This is the first retrospective of the work of 51N4E architectural studio, founded by architects Johan Anrys, Freek Persyn and Peter Swinnen.
The central theme of the exhibition is the 51N4E architects? approach to design. To curator Dominique Boudet, the subtitle Double or Nothing refers to the architects? modus operandi, which makes every project a catalyst of urban and social transformation, and also refers to the relationship between client and architect, both inspired by the need for the design solution adopted to become added value for society.
Finally, the exhibition offers an opportunity to reinterpret the space in the Palais des Beaux-arts in Brussels, designed by Victor Horta.
