The Generous Space
An Interlacing Place for a World in Movement
Theological lecture in Dutch by Tom Callebaut, interior architect.
We live in a world that is changing quickly and unpredictably, a world where various ways of life and views on life meet. Despite or rather thanks to this context, many people are seeking deepening and connection, both in the social and the spacial sence of the word. How can our religious patrimony be a contemporary tool in that search? How do we shape the meaning of new spaces?
The concept of ‘the generous space’ was born from these questions in combination with insights from designing research, actual designing assignments and personal experience. Tom Callebaut will illustrate the concept and his underlying motivation through actual projects. In his hopeful story, he approaches secularization and globalization as an opportunity rather than a threat.
Tom Callebaut (°1971) is an interior architect. He teaches and is taking his doctor’s degree at the faculty of architecture of KU Leuven. He also runs his own designing agency ‘tc plus’. His expertise focusses on the design of sacral spaces, both within the religious patrimony and the creation of new ‘strong spaces’. Tom considers architecture as the means to the end of touching people, bringing movement an connecting. Do you want to know more about Tom’s project? Find out more on the website of tc plus.
