In his essay, Wim Cuvyers presents an alternative reading of the Gillet House in Angleur. He offers a critical perspective on the description of the house as ‘organic’ architecture and underlines the central position of the ‘desire for form’ in this project. The Gillet House, as Cuyvers put forward, is in spite of its seemingly free form, extremely static. However, despite all of its shortcomings, it is completely accepted by its inhabitants, due to their ‘love’ of the house. As such the Gillet House is doomed to die along with its inhabitants.
