Koekelberg: a story of façades

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

What if the façades of Koekelberg’s buildings could tell you a story? Vines, waves, swans, water lilies, storks, cherubs, flowers and winged lions populate the reconstituted concrete, stained glass, ceramics and sgraffitos of pre- and post-war houses. A moment of seduction in a neighbourhood that’s often only known for its basilica.

In cooperation with Itinéraires, sur les Sentiers de l’Histoire.
