bOb Van Reeth is an iconic Belgian architect. The éminence grise of Flemish architecture has devised a number of impressive projects, both in Belgium and abroad.
In 2013, his 50-year career was the subject of a retrospective at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. His works include the Kazerne Dossin Holocaust museum, Java Island in Amsterdam and Huis Van Roosmalen - better known as the black-and-white-striped zebra house - and Zuidterras in Antwerp.
In 1971, the architect and urban planner founded AWG (architect work group). He also lectures in Ghent, Antwerp, Tilburg and Delft. Van Reeth was appointed as the very first Flemish Government Architect, a title he held for 10 years.
