Between 2008 and 2012, BOZAR architecture and A+ Architecture in Belgium has set up a series of micro-exhibitions and conferences dedicated to promoting young Belgian architecture: NICHE.

They have thus highlighted a new generation of Belgian architects by offering 20 offices the opportunity to give a lecture, exhibit a model for one season at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels and see their project published in a visitor's guide.

The exhibition XX MODELS. Young Belgian Architecture offers a glimpse of this generation by presenting one of their first major projects, through unique models and sound interviews.

This book presents 20 recent projects by 20 young Belgian architectural firms through 20 architectural models.

In an aim to offer young talent a stage, A+ Belgian Architectural Review and BOZAR Architecture invited, every two months from September 2008 anwards, a young architectural firm to take part in the NIche series. Each firm was to present one of their early large-scale projects during a talk, and the relevant model would then be displayed, for the rest of the season, at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. The exhibition XX Models Young Belgian Architecture gathers all 20 models.
