At the corner of Avenue Van Volxem/Van Volxemlaan and Avenue du Pont de Luttre/Luttrebruglaan stand the buildings of the former Wielemans brewery, fine examples of Brussels’s industrial heritage. “Wielemans Tower” was designed in 1930 by architect Adrien Blomme. After lying empty for many years, a restoration, in keeping with the original, carried out between 2005 and 2008, returned the site to how it once looked. Today, the former brewery site is a model example of the repurposing of industrial heritage: Adrien Blomme’s building is now home to WIELS, a world-renowned centre for contemporary art. In this place of creation and dialogue, art and architecture form the basis for a discussion on topical issues, via temporary exhibitions by new and established national and international artists.
