This book may not be a brand new publication, but it most certainly is a true classic that all architecture fans in Belgium (or abroad) should own. Luster Publishing has also collected some of the best buildings and most inspiring architecture from abroad (Best Buildings - Britain and Best Buildings - Holland), but the publication that we put in the spotlight here takes you to some of the unique architectural monuments that shape Belgium.
This comprehensive and revised edition of Belgium's Best Buildings is a stylish and accessible guide for architecture fans in Belgium and far beyond. This book takes you to about one hundred buildings, completed after 1900, which show that our country is no less impressive than others when it comes to impressive architecture. On the cover you can see the unique library of Schoten, designed by Renaat Braem, and inside other unique buildings such as the architecture library of Ghent University and the MAS in Antwerp. Learn more about projects from the 50s, 60s and 70s, but also about contemporary pearls and icons in the making.
On a walk through Belgium? With this book you can just do it from home!
A number of renowned Belgian architects and connoisseurs were called upon to compile this book. They were asked to assemble their top 10 and talk about their absolute must-see building in our country. Of course the projects are all worth a visit, but with this book you can simple walk through Belgium from the comforts of your own home. We already talked about this publication in the most recent issue of Imagicasa Magazine, in which we highlight all the best that our own country has to offer. Best Buildings - Belgium is deservedly a part of Luster Publishing's series focusing on the same theme. Curious Belgium is an online platform and community where you can learn more about our small but interesting country through blog posts, beautiful photos, unexpected content and an online bookshop.
Feel free to take a look at the website and make sure to buy your own copy of the book Best Buildings - Belgium for an inspiring journey through Belgium.
