Charlotte Van Den Broeck: Waagstukken

A swimming hall is sinking into the muddy ground, in a barracks there are only four toilets for 2,400 soldiers, and on a golf course the grass seeds do not grow. Poet Charlotte van den Broeck’s »Waagstukken« [tr: Bold Ventures] is a personal essay that gets to the bottom of failure, based on thirteen failed buildings and their architects some of whom subsequently took their own lives. »Van den Broeck is great at playfully blending philosophical observations and journalistic passages.« [De Standaard]
