EXTRA-MUROS – The Plateau du Heysel – On the trail of the World’s Fairs of 1935 and 1958
The Design Museum Brussels invites you to discover the photographic work of the French architect, designer and photographer Charlotte Perriand. A daring pioneer of the “art of living” in connection with nature, she used giant photomontages to denounce unhealthy urbanism and to give her vision on better living conditions. Isabelle van Oost’s recycled plastic lights will make you see O.V.N.I.S. in the museum.
EXTRA-MUROS: This route takes you on a tour of the remains of the two World Fairs that took place at Heysel. The Heysel Plateau bears witness to the development of modern architecture in Brussels: from Palace 5 to the former Pavilion of the Kortrijk Tile Factory, via the Atomium, the experiments and dreams of modernity of the 20th century are displayed here in all their boldness (museum visit not included).
