Architecture Developments in Belgium – latest additions to this page, arranged chronologically:

This building appears to be’ all about the exterior’: shaped like a whale, very eye-catching but why? The pursuit of the icon has led much large-scale architecture of the last decade and has been criticised for producing stunning but ’empty’ architecture lacking the consistency and depth of say the International Style. Non-architectes lap it up, flocking to the latest exciting building such as Bilbao’s Guggenheim and can’t understand why architects don’t relax a bit and enjoy more colour and exuberance in their architecture. But like any discipline, once you have been educated professionally you learn to appreciate the nuances and rigour of certain approaches to your chosen profession whether you are playing the violin or a fashion designer.

Maisin Centre Brussels, Quartier Léopold
The Maisin Centre is established on a small allotment, 15 metres in width, in the heart of the “quartier Léopold” in Brussels. Its conception is, in essence, a re-interpretation of the traditional patricianʼs lay-out with its characteristic passageway entrance open to pedestrians, encompassing some ten-odd meeting rooms and offices.
