Turncoats Debate: The Good, the Bad and the Belgian

Elsbeth Ronner (Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk) Jan de Vylder (architecten de vylder vinck taillieu) Job Floris (Monadnock) Martino Tattara (DOGMA)

A Turncoats Debate at 019 — Museum of Moving Practice

“A post-war self-build housing boom has saddled the entirety of Belgium with a rash of eccentric, highly individual, often hideous homes. Yet the trope of the Ugly Belgian House is a tribute to the civic freedom of the Belgian citizen. In an era of rising xenophobia, architectural taste can play a new role as a built barometer for social tolerance.

Many in our industry are trying to regain power, wresting architectural control back from the man in the street. They must be stopped — liberty trumps beauty.”
