Brussels-based 51N4E international practice that concerns itself with matters of architectural design, concept development and strategic spatial transformations. Headed by Johan Anrys and Freek Persyn, the office was founded in 1998 and aspires to contribute to social and urban transformation.

The book 'HOW THINGS MEET', that accompanies 51N4E's installation in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, is a dual-narrative, part photo-novel, part real-life journey, telling one story in multiple ways.

In its first part, the book couples short stories by Falma Fshazi with photographs by Stefano Graziani. The story of a discovery; an encounter with a strange land, beyond East and West, and a city, Tirana. The second part casts a retrospective look at the construction of a tower designed by 51N4E, and on all the projects that followed in its wake, from 2004 onwards. It describes moments, processes and relationships that allowed the architects to come into contact with a culture and a context so different from their own. Overall, this book is a story of embracing otherness, and a contemplation on how things meet.
