The pioneer architects of Belgian modernity – Guided tour of the Brugmann neighborhood with Elisabeth Gérard, Architecture student

Guided tour
Matrimony Season 2021/22
14:00-16:00 Brugmann neighborhood

This tour is to reveal the place of women within the modernist movement in Brussels. There are several symbolic works of said movement in the Brugmann neighborhood, in Brussels. Let’s go discover them: partly thanks to modernist works by women (often less renowned but none the less interesting), partly by discussing the roles women may have played in works that are attributed to men.

Soon to graduate from the La Cambre Horta faculty of architecture at the ULB, Elisabeth Gérard is writing her thesis on the (in)visibilization of the first women to graduate in architecture from La Cambre (1929-1950) - including Simone Guillissen-Hoa, Dita Roque-Gourary and Odette Filippone.
