Fragile- Lab by Import.Export Architecture, Antwerpen Belgium


Fragile- Lab, is a complex design by the Belgian architecture studio Import.Export Architecture. The lab is located in Antwerpen, Belgium and houses four different functions: storage facilities, a retail showroom, office and a duplex apartment.

The  building is characterized by its light structure, featuring large expanses of glass and off-kilter columns. The architects aim was to intentionally make the building appear fragile. This is further enhanced by its many angles and almost see through interior. Inside, a full length green wall connects the levels an adds color to the stark white space.
