EXPO Corporate Arcadia

23/06/2017 - 24/09/2017

Countless books and exhibitions have presented their visions of Brussels over recent decades, often with an emphasis on sustainability. Corporate Arcadia, however, looks at what was actually built. With a particular focus on the 1990s and on the early years of the new century, the exhibition shows how the corporate architecture of company offices, bank headquarters, and hotels has shaped the panorama of Brussels since the Brussels-Capital Region was established in 1989 – the sort of buildings that are rarely considered from the point of view of architectural culture. The exhibition aims to fill that gap and to bring architectural curiosity to bear on key projects that have become highly visible features of the urban landscape over those years.
