The engineer Jean Englebert (1928 - ) talks in December 2015 with two female architecture students. He recalls his family background and the blossoming of his professional vocation and academic career, the windows on the world offered by magazines such as Architecture d'Aujourd'hui, Domus, Architectural Review, the 'overflow' of history in his education, his collaboration with René Greisch, his participation in the development of the Sart-Tilman campus, his role in the fight to save the Place Saint-Lambert in Liège, the conflicts and corporatist convergences between engineers and architects, the creation of the CRAU (Centre de recherche d'architecture et d'urbanisme), and his interest in Japanese culture and society This exchange becomes an opportunity for Jean Englebert to clarify his attitude towards prefabrication and the industrialisation of the construction sector. Finally, the authors also give us an original reading of the engineer's personal house.
