Alumni in the spotlight
MaHS-MaUSP students don't only build friendships for life, they sometimes also become professional partners in crime!
Ernesto Diez, Spain (MaUSP ’17); Jonas Knapen, Belgium (MaUSP ’13); Joyce Stijnen, Belgium (MaHS ’16), Valentine Van den Eynde, Belgium (MaUSP ’16) and Marijn Vandeweijer, The Netherlands (MaHS ’11) - All five of them are part of a team of architects, architectural engineers, interior designers, urban designers and landscape designers as part of the Brussels and Hasselt based design studio a2o. a2o is a breeding ground for spatial experimentation and innovation by design. Any solution or strategy begins with reflection on the urban landscape. The projects are initiated by intertwining design methodologies of architecture, landscape, urban design, spatial strategy and research. These experimental methods always lie at the root of a quest for collective added value, social engagement and sustainable concepts. Spatial experiments, imaginary projects or theoretical reflections create an ‘open research area’, a lab where they can critically test spatial impact and social consequences. The work of a2o includes both projects and publications in Belgium and beyond. Recently they published a book at NAi on their award-winning crematorium project.

Alumnus is the spotlight!
Mircea Munteanu (Romanian)
Master of Urbanism and Strategic Planning (2012)
Mircea Munteanu is a co-founder of Metapolis, a Brussels based practice working on the confluence of city and nature across scales. With background in architecture, urbanism and constructed landscape, Metapolis designs clear and open living environments, rooted in a precise reading and a critical interrogation of their physical and socio-economical context. Their projects are staged as identifiable designs that develop into symbiotic systems, at once embedded in, revealing of and enriching for their respective environments.
The work of Metapolis consists of various winning projects in Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands. In 2013 and 2017 they were awarded at the EUROPAN competition, while in 2015 they received the Young Architecture Talent prize of the province of West-Flanders.
