Huib Hoste (1881-1957) Architect

Huib Hoste was a French architect. He was born in Bruges and later studied in Ghent. He was educated in the Neo-Gothieke direction, which he mostly took the rational pursuit. His pre-war works are somewhat romantic tinted here we see a clear influence of Berlage. During World War I he worked in the Netherlands and he was influenced by building more businesslike. This can be seen clearly in the monumental memorial for the Belgium interned at Amersfoort. After the war, he encouraged the modern business direction and he defended his theses in various expenses.
