Flemish Minister of Culture supports heritage project on architect Léon Stynen

In January 2017 Flemish Minister for Culture Sven Gatz decided to award a subsidy to the heritage project 'Architecture and professionalism. Cultural heritage approaches for Léon Stynen and his international contemporaries', a project applied for by the Architectuurarchief Provincie Antwerpen, in close collaboration with the Center for Flemish Architectural Archives (heritage cell of the Flanders Architecture Institute).

In 2018, the Architectuurarchief and the Flanders Architecture Institute organize a 'Stynen Year', a research and heritage project culminating in a publication and exhibition in October 2018. 

As a prelude to the project, the organizers gather an international team of researchers and heritage workers on a conference for an exchange on heritage approaches of the cultural legacy of architects similar in profile to the Belgian architect Léon Stynen.
