Inventories#0 Architectures Wallonie-Bruxelles (2005-2010)
This publication gives an overview of the current architecture situation in Wallonia and Brussels, and comes five years after the publication of the Livre blanc de l’architecture en Communauté française de Belgique – Qui a peur de l’architecture ? (White Paper on Architecture in the French Community of Belgium – Who’s Afraid of Architecture?).
The publication includes:
- A selection of ongoing and completed projects illustrating the commitment of the government and private contractors to a form of architecture that is in harmony with the times; it also shows how these entities recognise that well-designed buildings are a means of improving quality of life for their residents and, in the case of public buildings, the community as a whole. These projects, along with their technical specifications, represent a wide spectrum of types of building, illustrating different practices and situations (from garden sheds to office blocks, and from extensions inside an urban block to polar research stations, etc.).
- A collection of new articles, commissioned from sociologists, philosophers, architects, critics and teachers working in the French Community and at international level, to accompany the 112 projects illustrated.
- An inventory of the cultural activities conducted in the field of architecture and related disciplines (publications, theses, exhibitions, audiovisual activities, conferences, etc). This publication, number ‘0’, is intended as a prelude to a continuing series of future publications, which the French-speaking Community aims to bring out periodically in order to demonstrate the highlights of architectural design in Wallonia and Brussels.
