What living somewhere means is a sensitive narrative that looks back over a three-year journey exploring French-speaking Belgium and meeting its residents. During this exploration and by using culture as a lever, the Cultural Institute of Architecture Wallonia-Brussels asked the following question to all its audiences: “What does living somewhere mean to you?” Although the responses gathered are specific to French-speaking Belgian culture, their impact goes beyond borders and broadly questions our ways of living. Because living somewhere doesn’t only mean being housed, it’s also being aware of a landscape and an (un)built region, it’s thinking about making do with what already exists, what has already been built and developed, it’s also helping develop your living environment and the culture that comes to life around it, and above all, it’s dreaming. What living somewhere means invites you to immerse yourself in and draw inspiration from visions that are sometimes built, sometimes sketched, sometimes anchored in reality, sometimes utopian, emanating from all those involved in our living environment.
