The UCLouvain campus: a village within the city

The campus of UCLouvain’s Faculty of Medicine in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe features a set of remarkable buildings, including the pioneering Maison Médicale (Mémé) complex built in the 1970s. Designed by Lucien and Simone Kroll, this is internationally recognised as a major work of 20th-century architecture. On this tour you will learn about the philosophy underpinning the university’s development of its new complex and the site as a whole, part of which has been protected since 2020 in recognition of its great heritage significance. The walk will also take in the Albert Couvreur Pharmaceutical Museum. Depending on the situation at the time, musical entertainment will be provided on the roof of Alma metro station.

In cooperation with the Heritage Promotion Department of the Municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe and Arkadia, Arte-Fac and UCLouvain.
