Beyond the river… the green city

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

It is impossible to talk about nature in the city without mentioning the works of visionary architect Luc Schuiten. For 40 years, this artist has shown that architecture and nature are able to complement each other perfectly and that such a union is even essential for those living in the city. The scars left on Brussels by the major urban development schemes of the 19th century have been a source of discontent and violence. The creations of Luc Schuiten place people back in the natural environment, recreating a symbiosis between the city and its inhabitants. For the architect, urban renaissance starts with reconciling humans with their natural environment. You will learn about his projects through models, photos, etc. A spiritual descendant of Leonardo da Vinci, the architect will, depending on his availability, be on hand to tell you about his best projects in Brussels and his “green cities”, the future of our dehumanised urban living spaces.
