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.”
