Luk Peeters, M.Eng/Arch and Urban Design is Senior Executive Partner and Head of Architecture at ORG Permanent Modernity. Since 2007 he has developed a bureau with a team of 40 people, with offices in Brussels and New York. He has produced high-profile designs at home and abroad, with active projects in Europe and Africa.
Since ‘00 Luk has extensive and international experience in designing sustainable production buildings and sites. He has taken an innovative approach with ORG projects by bringing production into the fabric of the city, creating mixed-use typologies and shaping them within timeless, flexible structures. He designed the masterplan for the Abattoir site in Anderlecht, as well as the Foodmet, an iconic building (with the largest aquaponic urban roof farm in Europe) where production, meat processing and markets are brought together in one building. He also led the research and development for several mixed-use production / residential buildings that are currently under construction in Brussels, paving the way for new social and functional mixing in the city.
Luk has a Master’s in Civil Engineering and Architecture from KU Leuven and a Master’s in Spatial Planning from KU Leuven and UGent. He is a licensed architect in Belgium.
