Brutalism on a Human Scale. Post-war Architecture by Léon Stynen (1899-1990)

On the occasion of  the London Festival of Architecture The Flanders Architecture Institute and The General Representation of the Government of Flanders in the United Kingdom at the Embassy of Belgium open the exhibition Brutalism on a Human Scale. Post-war Architecture by Léon Stynen (1899-1990) on Thursday 6 June in the iconic Silver Building, London.

Exhibition | Brutalism on a Human Scale
The exhibition presents an insight into the post-war oeuvre of the Belgian architect Léon Stynen. His brutalist designs, in which the human scale plays a crucial role, take centre stage. The curators reveal the richness of post-war architecture and highlight the importance of the modernist heritage for today’s urban development.

Opening | The Future of the Other Modern
The curators interpret Stynen’s oeuvre and a discussion takes place about the future of post-war modernism in Belgium and the United Kingdom.

Curators Nina Serulus and Bart Tritsmans

Lecture by dr. Sofie De Caigny (director Flanders Architecture Institute) Engaging Léon Stynen. Contemporary Valorisation and Interventions
