The words from Urban's Head

archiweek 2020 aims to open the doors to quality architecture in the Brussels Region.

For its second edition, Urban has for the first time invited Curators to give their vision of Brussels architecture. The trio Traumnovelle + humbble + Katja Truijen proposes to re-imagine and activate the city beyond productivity in the context of the pandemic we are currently experiencing. Through guided tours, 20 architectural sites will be explored through the prism of the fundamental acts of life, education, ceremony, love and death.

In addition to these visits, archiweek gives you the opportunity to push open the doors of architectural offices which will be specially open to you on the weekend of 10 and 11 October 2020.

Lectures and debates, but also bike rides, walks, workshops for families will allow you to continue your reflection on architectural creation in Brussels.

Finally, the two "sustainable architecture" days will highlight four sustainable architectural projects, presented by their architects.

Urban warmly thanks those responsible for the venues, the architects, the owners, the associations, the municipal authorities, the guides and its partners without whom archiweek 2020 would not have been possible.

Enjoy architectural discoveries,
Bety Waknine
Executive Director
