Embassy of Albania
While the architect's identity remains a mystery, we know that this charming bourgeois residence was built in 1906. Rue de Tenbosch / Tenbosstraat, which links Avenue Louise/Louizalaan to Chaussée de Waterloo / Waterloosesteenweg, was laid out in 1864 by highways inspector Victor Besme as part of the wider development of the neighbourhood. The road it replaced crossed a hamlet called Den Verkeerde Haan (or Le Coq Retourné). The building with its white-stone façade is illustrative of the Beaux-Arts style, with a bow-window occupying the first-floor central bay. It is now home to the Albanian Embassy.
Information will be provided on site to showcase Albania's potential as a tourist destination (in English only). Activities such as food tasting, poetry and dances will make you discover more about Albania.
Exhibition - Dastid Miluka
Dastid Miluka was born on September 15, 1974, in Tirana, Albania and from 2003, he lives & works in Brussels, Belgium. In his creations, Dastid plays with characters that evolve through a “hide and seek” game of reality and fantasies. Oneiric figures, characters and places that come together as another way of a symbolic storytelling which literally and metaphorically communicate with the viewer through their own allegorical language. www.dastid.com
