WBA collaborates to the exhibition BEL:EST. A Laboratory for Europe in Brussels with among other architects AgwA, Lassa and L'escaut, that will open at 7 pm on September 13th, as part of the Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2017 satellite programme in Estonia. Then the exhibition travels to BOZAR, to present the case studies and spatial proposals to the Brussels’ public, opening on the 23rd of November, 2017.
In April 2017, architects from 5 Estonian and 5 Belgian architecture offices took a deep dive into a number of urban design and architecture problems that the city of Brussels faces every day. The issues they explored were selected using expertise from Belgian as well as Estonian side. The architects looked at how to improve the security of critically important buildings in the city, how urban planning and architecture could support a more coherent society, how a more digital society might change the physical city around us, etc.
Participating offices worked in following teams:
The exhibition is curated by Aet Ader (a promising young Estonian architect from the b210 office, and Vice-Chairman of the Estonian Association of Architects) and Iwan Strauven (Bozar curator for architecture), designed by Karli Luik (Kontekst) and produced by Eesti Arhitektuurikeskus (Estonian Centre of Architecture). The project is dedicated to the Estonia 100 centenary celebrations and Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
