Publishing hitherto undisclosed archival material, editors Peter Swinnen and Nikolaus Hirsch, along with the book’s contributors, critically reassess Janssens’ trial-and-error, uncompromising spatial practice. A.J. Lode Janssens - 1,47 mbar is the third volume in an architecture series dedicated to autonomous Belgian architects, which also features books on René Heyvaert and Luc Deleu & T.O.P. office.
