"AgwA is a Brussels-based architecture practice founded in 2003. Twenty-three projects are presented through various documents that explore AgwA's process of thinking and building architecture. Together with two essays and an interview with the architects, this accumulation of drawings, sketches, scale models, plans and photographs illuminates the current condition of Belgian architecture - its roughness and playfulness - exploring and revealing the societal and cultural relevance of the materials, context, spatial gesture and structures within architecture."

"AgwA shows work in progress: execution as a verb. A collection of collected images. Without a necessary order or sequence. Enlarged and then zoomed in again. But moments that had to be visualised at that time. Perhaps merely to serve as witness. Perhaps ultimately as an unencumbered catalogue of which only this or that will really be understood later on. Or will even be used. AgwA makes work of work in progress: exe¬cution as a context. That all of those images are collected is not odd. Not odd in and of itself. As situated: the importance of the building site. But also not strange for AgwA itself. The work itself of AgwA. Increasingly the work situates the idea of what a building truly is. How it is made. Or rather, how it is actually made." — Jan De Vylder.
