Exhibition / House Guiette

In 2015 it has been fifty years since the decease of the architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (1887-1965), better known as Le Corbusier. This anniversary was the occasion for several new publications and an exhibition in Centre Pompidou (closed on 3 August 2015). 

Also in Belgium the anniversary was commemorated, with the exhibition Lived-in of the Flanders Architecture Institute. Le Corbusier's Chandigarh is one of the cases in this exhibition. Parallel to this expo a small exhibition opende in the 'VAi-vitrine' (at the entrance of the VAi-offices) on the House Guiette, the only realisation of Le Corbusier in Belgium. The design, its development in dialogue with the painter René Guiette (1893-1976) who commissioned the house, its decay and eventual listing, restauration and extension by the architect Georges Baines (1925-2013) can be seen in this exhibition, which is open till 10 January 2016.

The exhibited documents and models are part of the collection of the Architectuurarchief van de Provincie Antwerpen, which keeps the archives of Georges Baines.
