The May edition of the international architecture magazine The Plan is featuring ORG's Fire Station in Asse.
"Fire stations rarely become topics of architectural interest. Yet, 50 years later, the Fire Station in the Belgian town of Asse, designed by ORG promises to do just that, providing an interesting comparison and view of current architecture culture. [...] Venturi designed an asymmetrical building, but oddly felt the need to make it look symmetrical. Venturi wanted to equip it with an image of unity and monumental, civic scale, elevating a fire station to the level of city hall, campanile included. ORG, by contrast, has created a civic aura, without resorting to a false "complexity", but simply by arranging the program parts in shrewd yet subtle spatial fashion."
