Brussels Oppositions : A Walk / A Lecture / A Talk

Paoleta Holst was the guide of an interesting route through a specific area in Brussels. As part of the two-week residency program at W-O-L-K-E the whole group of our master students explored the spatial oppositions of two distinctive neighborhoods in Brussels that are situated next to each other: the European quarter and the Matonge.

Two main causes of the visible spatial differences in these neighborhoods, can be defined as the historical and political effects of migration and real estate development. The central question that was posed during /Walk /Lecture /Talk #1 treated the extent to which the city and its architecture show some physical elements that articulate increasing migration, the different forms it has and the way in which migrants move, maintain and express in their ‘new’ or ‘temporary’ environment?
