Stijn Colon of Belgian architects Rotor will address issues of retrofit, re-use and radical reclamation through an analysis of the salvage architecture of Marcel Raymaekers through the eyes of Rotor. Rotor are a cooperative architecture design practice that investigates the organisation of the material environment. They develop critical positions through research and design. Besides projects in architecture and interior design, they also produce exhibitions, books, economic models and policy proposals. In 2016, Rotor launched the spin-off project Rotor DC, a place to buy salvaged building components.

Stijn Colon is a researcher and designer, who graduated as an architect in 2018. As a member of Rotor, he worked on several exhibitions, design, research and consultancy projects. He's co-author of 'Ad Baroque', a forthcoming book publication on the postwar salvage architecture of Marcel Raymaekers. He has taught architecture at KU Leuven since 2020.

Multistory Lectures run from 17:30 on Thursday evenings in the Architecture Crit Room at UCA Canterbury, unless otherwise stated. Multistory is free and open to all.
