About Marcel Lambrichs (1917-1986): Lambrichs studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels before his education was interrupted by WWII. In WWII, Lambrichs became a prisoner of war before escaping from a prison camp in Silesia. He later finished his studies at the Royal Academy and launched his career as Europe began to rebuild. He spent much of his early career in the Congo, and specialized in banks and administrative buildings, where he fine-tuned his architectural perspective. Later, he went on to win many awards and accolades for his work.
