60 years of architecture in Brussels.
The some 400 projects presented are placed in the context of their age and their significance: repairing the damage caused by the route taken by the North-South railway junction and the impoverishment of the city centre, Expo ´58 and the primacy awarded to the motorcar, the phenomenon of bruxellisation, May ´68 and urban protest, the oil crises and birth of the metro, the effects of regionalization, urban renewal and the growing strength of environmental demands... To name but some.
