Building for Brussels breaks with the laws of the classical architectural exhibition. It doesn’t show beautiful, special or spectacular buildings that are a statement by themselves. Instead, it argues that architecture can be a lever to tackle major societal challenges (such as demographic growth, mobility, urban economy). The selection of international, innovative city projects gives you a taste of how things can be done differently and better. Or how architectural culture can provoke and inspire Brussels policy makers.
