Belgian architect, designer and urban planner; one of the founding members of CIAM.
The Congrès internationaux d'architecture moderne (CIAM), or International Congresses of Modern Architecture, was an organization founded in 1928 and disbanded in 1959, responsible for a series of events and congresses arranged across Europe by the most prominent architects of the time, with the objective of spreading the principles of the Modern Movement focusing in all the main domains of architecture (such as landscape, urbanism, industrial design, and many others).
One of Hoste's first and most noted designs is the Church of Our Lady in Zonnebeke (1924). His first truly modern edifice was his Zwarte Huis (Black House, 1924) in Knokke, which is stripped of any kind of decoration.
He died on 18 August 1957 in Hove.
