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.
