Hello, World !

Adrien Gesulfo, young architecture enthusiast from Belgium, currently working at Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD) in Hong Kong. Deep into computational design and construction knowledge, I am involved in the thrilling design of a 1 km-long parametric façade in Ningbo, China and in design competitions. I was previously following the complex façade construction at Morpheus Hotel Tower, Macau designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

The Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD) is a young Hong Kong based architectural design and research practice. LEAD applies latest design and fabrication technologies in projects with scales ranging from installations, pavilions, interior design and buildings to large-scale architecture.

Joined LEAD’s dynamic team in Hong Kong to participate in the design development and drawing packages of a 1 km-long non-standard mixed-use building facade design and to develop competition projects.

Three significant projects:

  • K11 Art Mall – Façade systems, balconies, skylights and atria – Rhino & GH(Python) & Revit – 50.000m2
  • Seoul Creative Play –  Mixed-use professional & community building for theatre performances – 8.000m2
  • WKCD Pavilion – hyper light-weight temporary structure with unique architectural potentials, made from off-the-shelf objects – 243 m2

Joined the international team of the free-form façade’s contractor – Kyotec Group – on Morpheus Hotel Tower, the new premier landmark hotel of City of Dreams in Macau designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. From concrete aspects of big works through fine detailing of façade elements, this thrilling on-site experience threw me in, literally. It brought me a lot about construction know-how, design stages and the importance of fine detailing. Combining these assets makes me well-versed to take up amazing projects yet to come.

Worked for a range of local commissions and international competitions, including multi-unit residential projects, embassies, museum, law headquarters. Work was conducted on all design stages, from sketch and 3d rendering to building permit and construction document.

Worked on the renovation project of a neoclassical hospital into a College of Arts and Architecture during my student exchange at McGill, Montréal. « Into the wild » in order to understand this Central American context. (Granada, Nicaragua)

Summer jobs on site for three construction companies located in Brussels. Participated in the electric renovation of a boarding school, the making of a new tile roof and the construction of interior fixtures.



In September 2013, I founded ArchArch.be – the sharing platform for architecture students in Belgium. Six architecture faculties joined the movement with more than 250+ projects from first to last year. This online exhibition hall is the only one of its kind with more than 200k page views from 50k single users over 4 years. I see it as a booster of creativity in architecture school, as we can embrace what has been done before, we can imagine even smarter solutions.


In August 2015, I have been asked to join the team of researchers at my university to design two online platforms becoming focal tools to the architecture workshops Lab-Istanbul & Youyang-Lab.

The expected production is wide as it goes beforeduring and after the visit in Istanbul.


During these years, I enjoyed keeping records of the model making process…
