Walking Tour

In the shadow of Justice: everyday Art Nouveau (fully booked)

Ch. Bastin & J. Evrard ©

From the Sablon/Zavel to the Marolles/Marollen, this tour will pack in plenty of surprising discoveries about the Art Nouveau style, taking in architects and decorators such as Victor Horta, the Hamesse brothers, Albert Cortvriendt, Adolphe Crespin, Jules Barbier and Fernand Symons.

Each of them has left their own creative and/or innovative mark, while also reflecting the individual tastes and personalities of the people who commissioned the work.

Aesthetic beauty and simplicity, attention to detail, polychrome decorations... All these and more are on display in a diverse array of buildings and façades, including town houses, artists' studios, shops, art galleries and schools.

The variety of architectural functions mirrors the diversity of groups within the local population.

In cooperation with 91e Parallèle.
