Francelle Cane

is an architect (ENSA Versailles) and curator mainly active in Brussels and Luxembourg.

Her practice focuses on transversal and multidisciplinary research activities tied to the question of the ruin: she advocates for a critical design approach, concentrating on issues such as late capitalism, climate change or the man-altered landscape. This approach has been showcased by exhibitions such as Enter the Modern Landscape (2019) and Rising Waters (2018), both held at Bozar. This ongoing research is supported by different types of projects and collaborations of various formats.

Cane has contributed to the edition and elaboration of publications and exhibition catalogues such as Machine opérationnelle (Brussels: Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, 2021), The World as a Pavilion. Vjenceslav Richter (London: Koenig Books, 2020), or URA. Yves Malysse Kiki Verbeeck (dir. De Visscher, Dehullu, Strauven. London: Koenig Books, 2020). She also publishes articles and reviews in art and architecture journals such as Journal and A+ Architecture in Belgium.

She is currently a doctoral researcher at the University of Luxembourg. She also is regularly invited to sit on juries at architectural faculties such as La Cambre-Horta (ULB). Her work has received multiple institutional awards, including the Maison de l'Architecture en Ile-de-France (2017 and 2018) and the Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique – FNRS (2020).
