Jo Crepain, Crepain Binst Architecture


Jo Crepain began his career 40 years ago. He designed his first project in 1973, while still a student: a house that won Belgium’s most prestigious architecture award.
The same year he graduated from Henry van de Velde Institute in Antwerp and started working as an architect, co-founding the studio SILO with E. Hoecks, J. Mooens, S. Stals and G. Van Looveren. At the same time he continued his studies in urban planning, a discipline that would become particularly important in his work.
Over the years he has worked particularly hard on residential designs, ranging from private villas to big housing developments, and in the area of urban planning, coming up with a plan for 143 apartments and residences in Hoorn Park in the Netherlands.
In 2006 Crepain began his professional partnership with Luc Binst, with whom he founded Crepain Binst Architecture.
He has also pursued an intense teaching career: Jo Crepain teaches at the Ghent Academy, the Academy of Architecture in Rotterdam and Henry van de Velde Institute in Antwerp, and has held conferences in universities in France and the Netherlands.
