"These installations are all site-specific, for they are associated with a particular location through perceptual motifs which articulate diverse variations on a potential concept of association, such as 'coupling', 'attachment', 'infiltration', 'relating' and 'entering into a dialogue'. Some installations appear to assume the role of the structural framework in a building. on closer examination, however, it is impossible to be sure how strong and secure these apparently supporting or load-bearing forms may actually be, for they seems to be cocked in the manner of a crossbow, with the capacity of discharge by the movement of some- probably- easily overlooked widget, thereby morphing into a pitiless instrument of torture. These objects, which engage the viewer in a poetic, oppressively intimidating, exclusive relationship, contrast sharply with the majority of Havermansí installations, which invite the visitor into a cuddly, inclusive relationship. The latter are designed to encourage the viewer to linger awhile, providing mental breaks where the course of everyday life is briefly interrupted."

Jos Bosman, excerpted from Frank Havermans: Architectural Constructions.

His activities include the design of furniture, interior and exterior design projects and large-scale urbanism. Documenting his work since 1998, this monograph presents maquettes and scale models alongside images of the realized projects.
