archiweek opens the doors to contemporary architecture in the Brussels Region

From 15 until 23 October 2022, Urban will organise guided tours in contemporary buildings, open days at architecture offices, seminars, workshops, conferences and exhibitions in the Brussels Capital Region. All these events will be free and open to all.

A specific view on the current architectural production?
Urban invites BC architects & studies & materials to share with us their opinion on about twenty contemporary buildings in Brussels.

Join the Urban guides during the entire weekend on 22 and 23 October 2022, who will take you on a tour of these buildings and explain their particularities in French, Dutch or English.

Brussels is mine


The city as a quarry replete with building materials

In these times of climate crisis and resource scarcity, there is an urgent need to take a critical look at the use of materials in contemporary architecture. Many material extraction techniques and production processes are energy-intensive and polluting, and the construction sector is a huge contributor to the climate change we are now experiencing. New visions for the future are required and architecture has to come up with sustainable alternatives in order to help make a difference
