Neder-Over-Heembeek: a century of upheaval

Few people know that when the City of Brussels initially annexed Neder-Over-Heembeek, it was not for the purpose of urban development! Incredibly, rural members of the council planned to use it for the site of a new church. However, new industries began to give the neighbourhood a more working class character. The visual environment changed, with the farms being replaced by Eclectic, Modernist houses and buildings.
This small multimedia exhibition will recall the early urbanisation of the city’s new “2nd district” during the Interbellum.

A partnership between La Promenade Verte de Neder-Over-Heembeekand the Maison de la Création, which are joining forces for a project that brings together their human, material and intellectual resources.
