Ugly houses and witty quotes. This simple recipe from the blog Ugly Belgian Houses by Hannes Coudenys is a hit. It began in 2011 with the online posting of one photo of an architectural 'monstrosity'. The result was a tsunami of likes and hundred reactions, positive but also a lot of negative. This book is not just a collection of ugly houses, but also a reflection on the sometimes surreal town planning and architecture in Belgium and the universal perception of beauty and ugliness. With contributions by Peter Swinnen, David Helbich (Belgian Solutions), Charles Holland (Fat Architecture), Bent Van Looy ...

When living in New York, my favorite bookshop called McNally Jackson, had this new Book Espresso Machine where you could print your own book. I decided to do so and created the first version of These 5 Years (in black and white), a small book with space for thoughts and humour that makes you think about the next 5 years in your life. In these times of the digital, the throw-away, the instant, it feels like we are missing out on permanence. Five years on paper has weight, a slowness and simplicity. Back in Belgium, I found a publisher interested in the book and six months later, the second version (two colors) was published.
The black and white edition is still available at McNally Jackson.
The color version is available in most bookshops in Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels, Leuven in Belgium. For more info about points of sale: Exhibitions International. (2012)
