Ghent-Authentic 'Contemporary Architecture'
Woven in between ancient buildings of the medieval city center, contemporary 'temples' arise. Local architects with names that resonate far beyond Belgium as there are Robbrecht, Daem & Van Hee, Stéphane Beel, Coessee & Goris, construct landmarks alongside the river Scheldt.
During this walk we discover how these architects took up the challenge to combine the 'old' with the new as well as how these poignant constructions will define the city of Ghent of tomorrow. We will include at least 1 short visit of one of them eg. the brand new library of Ghent and impressive landmark 'De Krook'!
