Institutions & The City: The Role of Architecture

As part of the Heritage Days, the Faculty of Architecture at UCLouvain in Brussels is organising an exhibition entitled ‘Institutions & the City: the Role of Architecture’. The exhibition will examine the relationship between architecture and the institutions that sprang up along the trace royal (the route linking the Royal Palace of Brussels to the Palace of Laeken/Laken). Graphic work by students will trace the history of this route and explore the vital role played by architecture in identifying and perpetuating legal, political, cultural, financial and other institutions. Young visitors are welcome; wooden play equipment will be available, allowing them to build a new tracé royal of their own! Meet in the Espace Collectif of the BNP Paribas Fortis Head Office. 
Entrance via Rue des Douze Apôtres/Twaalfapostelenstraat 3, 1000 Brussels. Free admission. Saturday 17 September, 10:00 to 18:00.
