Lucien Kroll (born Brussels, 13 March 1927) is a Belgian architect well known for this projects involving participation by the future users of the buildings. His most famous work is the Medical Faculty Housing, at the University of Louvain, Belgium, from 1970-76. These buildings "aroused widespread controversy in the early 1970s, their fragmented and improvisational appearance—the result of a deliberate participatory design process—in stark contrast to the adjacent massive and repetitive hospital, the embodiment of a centralized bureaucracy."[1]
