Reset Materials – Towards Sustainable Architecture is an invitation to explore a universe of experimental building materials and their applications. Ten multidisciplinary teams, each consisting of architects, artists and manufacturers, have joined creative forces to present their compelling visions of a post-carbon architecture.
Continuing this explorative process, the publication Reset Materials develops the multidisciplinary dialogues of the ten teams and materials, entangling shared learning and practices, science and aesthetics. The result becomes an inspirational manual that compiles a range of tactile collages, voices, experiences and reflections while expanding the discourse locally and globally through essays by Galaad Van Daele and Victor Boye Julebæk & Nicolai Bo Andersen
Please join us in celebrating the closing night of the exhibition ‘Reset Materials – Towards Sustainable Architecture’ and the launch of the accompanying book. To kick off the evening, we will host a presentation and roundtable discussion with special guests, followed by the book launch and a reception.

Jan Boelen is a curator of design, architecture, and contemporary art. He is the artistic director of Atelier LUMA, an experimental laboratory for design in Arles, France. Boelen studied Product Design at the Media & Design Academy in Genk and is the founder and former artistic director of Z33 – House for contemporary art in Hasselt, Belgium. He was curator of the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial in Istanbul (2018) and initiated Manifesta 9 in Belgium (2012). Lastly, Boelen curated the Lithuanian Pavilion Planet of People in the Venice Architecture Biennial (2021). Over the years he has been fashioning projects and exhibitions that encourage the visitor to look at everyday objects in a novel manner.
Boelen recently edited Social Matter, Social Design: For Good or Bad, all Design is Social (Valiz, 2020), and Muller Van Severen: Dialogue (Walther Koenig, 2021). His writing addresses the implications of design in everyday life and how artistic practices shape the discipline.
Atelier LUMA is the design research program of LUMA Arles dedicated to exploring new ways of using natural and renewable resources in design and architecture on a bioregional scale.
Atelier LUMA was founded in 2016. It brings together a team of designers, engineers, scientists, and experts from the fields of culture, craftsmanship, humanities, and social sciences and innovation, who explore the potential of non-extractivist, and often discredited, local materials, such as invasive plants, agricultural coproducts, algae, and industrial waste.
Housed since 2023 in Le Magasin Électrique, Atelier LUMA operates as a collaborative platform, working with local actors and partners, including farmers, craftspeople, and manufacturers to create sustainable and local solutions. Over the years, Atelier LUMA has expanded its research scope and reach from the Arles bioregion to the international level by taking part in European projects and accompanying other institutions in their research.
Galaad Van Daele is an architect, editor and researcher who teaches design at ETH Zürich and co-edits the architecture and art magazine Accattone. His work gravitates
towards spatial objects explicitly crossing the nature-culture boundary, which he approaches by means of writing and photography, andby tapping into the humanities and
earth-sciences. His past research projects have explored artificial topographies around the Mediterranean or questions of extractivism and nature politics, while his current doctoral project focuses on outlining a geological perspective on architectural history and design
Victor Boye Julebæk is an architect, PhD and assistant professor at the Royal Danish Academy – Centre for Sustainable Building Culture. His work explores the material practices, cultures and ecologies of architecture from both a theoretical and a hands-on, applied perspective through research, teaching and practice. Victor Boye Julebæk is head of the master’s programme for Cultural Heritage, Transformation and Conservation at the Royal Danish Academy – Institute of Architecture and Culture.
Nicolai Bo Andersen is an architect and professor at the Royal Danish Academy – Centre for Sustainable Building Culture. A critical question is how a phenomenological, first-person aesthetic experience may inspire ecological awareness and protection of the environment while respecting the planetary boundaries. Nicolai Bo Andersen is head of the master’s programme Sustainable Building Culture and the Centre for Sustainable Building Culture at the Royal Danish Academy – Institute of Architecture and Culture.
