Elzenhof GC | Ixelles, Bruxelles (be) | 2016
fr

For years the entrance lobby of Elzenhof – the Flemish cultural center of Ixelles – has been a windy and shadowy place: an abandoned-looking long hallway. From the utopia that the different groups and activities – so the people themselves – could somehow inhabit this place a cabin kind of structure was set into place providing niches and differentiated zones for a wide range of different purposes. Made out of cheap wood and recuperated material, with low-tech “anybody-could-have-made-it” technology, it reminds people that in this highly mechanized world we can still shape our own environment and spaces.
