Bike tour in Schaerbeek / Schaarbeek to discover Art Nouveau (fully booked)
This bicycle tour will start at Diamant/Diamant and will stop in front of many emblematic Art Nouveau buildings, insisting on the collective projects in that style and the values that those buildings express. The tour will go by the public school Fernand Blum, then stop in front of the social housing complex of the Foyer Schaerbeekois/Schaarbeekse Haard (two major creations by Henri Jacobs). We will go by the Place des Bienfaiteurs/Weldoenersplein and its statue. Then we will reach the Avenue Louis Bertrand/Louis Bertrandlaan (buildings by Frans Hemelsoet and Gustave Strauven) then the inescapable House Autrique. The subject of collective buildings will be studied with visits of the School n°1 and the social complex Cité de l’Olivier/Olivierwijk. The tour will then go through the Pogge area/Poggewijk (houses by Henri Jacobs and Joseph Diongre) and up to the Huart Hamoir area (houses by Frans Hemelsoet and Florent Rasquin) by passing in front of the Schaerbeek Town Hall.
The tour will end on boulevard ambermont/Lambermontlaan at the carrefour Demolder/Demolder.
