After Paris in 2015, the entrer: exhibition, realized by Wallonia-Brussels Architectures and curated by Audrey Contesse has been invited in October to the Sicli Pavilion by the Maison de l'Architecture in Geneva, as part of its “Urbanism Fortnight” themed around “the Art of Building the City”.

The exhibition

entrer: presents five recent projects reflecting the diversity of Wallonia and Brussels' architectural output, in an original and intriguing scenography - a wandering which will lead from the window to the lounge via chambers-: territorial setting-up, scale of the project, the diversity of generations and practices, orders and typologies, so many elements of context which testify of the know-how of the architects in front of specific situations.


- The Artothèque of Mons, in a former chapel, architects Atelier Gigogne architectures+ L' Escaut|
- A sports center, the Center Adeps La Fraineuse in Spa, architect Baukunst|
- Interlac, the alliance of the culture and the trade in a former dairy to Dison, architects Baumans-Deffet |
- The development into a public Place de la Cage aux Ours in Brussels, the architects MSA & Ney&Partners |
