AD Classics: Hôtel van Eetvelde / Victor Horta

To the contemporary observer, the flowing lines and naturalistic ornamentation of Art Nouveau do not appear particularly radical. To some, Art Nouveau may even seem to be the dying gasp of 19th Century Classicism just before the unmistakably modern Art Deco and International Styles supplanted it as the design modes of choice. The Hôtel van Eetvelde, designed in 1897 by Victor Horta—the architect considered to be the father of Art Nouveau—suggests a different story. With its innovative spatial strategy and expressive use of new industrial materials, the Hôtel van Eetvelde is a testament to the novelty of the “New Art.”

Vincent Callebaut Architectures' Plans for Eco-Neighbourhood in Brussels

Vincent Callebaut Architectures has released plans for the development of a radical eco-neighborhood at Tour & Taxis, Brussels, Belgium. Covering an area of 135,000 square meters, the proposal will see the redevelopment of the early twentieth-century Gare Maritime, and the construction of three residential “vertical forests” reaching 100 meters in height. The architect’s ultimate vision is a neighborhood which embraces technological progress, sustainable building principles, and renewal of the built heritage.

Situated northwest of Brussels city center, and constructed in 1907, the industrial park at Tour & Taxis originally operated as a shipping and customs complex. Whilst the lifting of European customs borders has rendered its original function obsolete, the Gare Maritime (Marine Terminal) still embodies the architecture of the industrial era.

Exhibition: Glazing the Future: Sergei Tchoban’s Architectural Fantasies

The harmonial contrast is the harmony of the 21st century: polyphony is meant to be the new language of the contemporary architecture. For several years now, the architect and artist Sergei Tchoban masters this language at its best by reflecting the multiple layers and ambivalent soul of our cities in his architectural drawings. The historical fabric and the present urge towards a significant object-based architecture are melted in fantasy-like perceptions. His hybrid structures of ancient buildings and modern glass towers may also remind of Bach´s Inventions: in a piece with two, three or more parts each of them unfold equally.
