Olivier Dwek. Selected Works
Of English origin, Olivier Dwek was born in 1970 in Brussels. Having been passionate about the visual arts from childhood, he began his studies at the Victor Horta Institute of Architecture at the ULB in 1990. Here he took particular interest in the workshops and often came into conflict with his professors. After an internship in the offices of Brussels architects Art & Build, who specialise in large-scale projects, he was given his first significant commissions in 1997. Dwek opened his own architectural firm in 2000. The Louis Vuitton store in Brussels was one of his first projects, which was followed by numerous other shopping and residential projects. Dwek is a self-taught architect, dedicated to the continuity of 20th-century modernism. Text in English, French and Dutch.
