Hip to be Square
Pages: 208,Format: 36,5 x 28 cm,1780 illustations in colour,Paperback . ISBN 9789061538844. Situated in the historic Mont des Arts district, SQUARE is a shining new landmark in the centre of Brussels. Its taken vision, tenacity and years of hard work to transform the massive, run-down Palais des Congrès into an inspirational international meeting centre for the 21st century. SQUARE is housed in an elegant, architecturally significant building originally constructed for the 1958 World Expo. Many of the original features, such as expansive murals by Belgian masters Paul Delvaux, René Magritte and Louis van Lint, have been carefully restored and renovated, and are now juxtaposed with contemporary design conceived by a team of leading European designers. Theres a confident understatement in all the finishes and furnishings, a commitment to function combined with a strong appreciation of form. From its elevated position, the views from the new meeting centre are magnificent, sweeping over the rooftops of the historic centre, offering inspiration to the mind. This is the story of a total makeover, in 150 spectacular photographs and with literary impressions by Caroline Lamarche, Annelies Verbeke and Christophe Deborsu. Of how an area steeped in the past will be shaping the future, of Brussels and the wider world. 0 g. Codice inventario libreria 23421
