In 1969, the unitary ULB was split into a French- and Dutch-speaking university. Two well-known architects left their mark on the VUB campus: Renaat Braem and Willy Van Der Meeren. We visit the Rector's House designed by Renaat Braem, who wanted to underline the VUB's body of thought with this building. The location of the building on the grounds of the new campus had to be highly visible and at the same time be a signpost for the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Moreover, it had to strive for a synthesis of the arts. He painted the walls and repeated the elliptical shape of the building in many details. For the canopy, he looked for symbols of a world view based on free science. The restoration that is currently underway aims to give it back the interpretation that Braem originally intended. Afterwards, we continue our tour of the campus and take a look at the student dormitories that Willy Van Der Meeren built there in the 1970s. But we also discover the new buildings by Bogdan & Van Broeck Architects and CONIX RDBM Architects.

The tour ends at 5:30pm. After the tour, you can attend the concert by Brussels Philharmonic at Flagey: 'Brahms & Tchaikovsky'. There's a combiticket for both the tour and the concert.
