Living in modern isms. Guided tours, lectures, bike tours. 04-25 October 2014, Brussels, Belgium
"Between 4 and 25 October 2014, the first edition of the Brussels Biennale of Modern Architecture (BBMA) organized by Korei in collaboration with Docomomo Belgium, Arkadia and Pro Velo.
Entitled Living in modern isms, this edition focuses on the different ways of modern living that were built in Brussels between 1918 and 1972. A whole range of architecture, cultural heritage, craftmanship and design will be at display during the biennale.
During each of the four Saturdays, there will be guided tours in English, French, Dutch and German in four private homes which open their doors for this unique event. So in all 16 hidden pearls, designed by renowned and less well-known architects such as Jacques Dupuis, Henry van de Velde, Louis Herman De Koninck, Huib Hoste and Georges Volckrick can be rediscovered, making this a unique opportunity for anyone keen on architecture. The contact with the owners during the visit emphasizes this brand new form of interactive tourism. There will also be three lectures and three bike rides."
