Innovation is the main challenge for today's European societies. However, Or, pour comprendre les enjeux du présent, une meilleure connaissance des multiples processus d’innovation dans le passé est nécessaire. C’est dans cette perspective large que le thčme des innovations verričres mérite d’ętre réinterrogé. Développées depuis l’Antiquité, les techniques du verre ont connu de trčs nombreuses innovations qui n’ont que rarement été mises en regard. Le colloque, organisé par l'association Verre et Histoire se propose donc de confronter les recherches de spécialistes internationaux pour aboutir ŕ une mise en perspective de longue durée et ŕ une comparaison des différents types d’innovations et de leurs enjeux sociaux.

Exhibition "The Cauchie House and the poster-facade" at the Archive of Modern Architecture in Brussels - from 22 June to 25 October 2009

 (2009)


From summer 2009, an exhibition will focus on the "poster-facade" topic around the Cauchie House, undeniable masterpiece of Art Nouveau in Brussels. "poster-facade" means a facade expressing a cultural, philosophical, commercial message…, independant from the building behind, such as the newspaper La Dépęche du Midi by Léon Jaussely in Toulouse or, more recently, Le Monde in Paris. In Brussels, the facade of the Cauchie House is the most striking example of poster-facade; it here expresses the desire to draw the attention of passer-bys and invite to know more about the art of the owner, an artist- designer who specialized in architectural sgraffito. The exhibition will compare the Cauchie House facade to other facades in Europe. Exhibition organized by the Archive of Modern Architecture in association with the Cauchie House Association.

Exhibition dedicated to the listed buildings of the city of Ålesund at the Jugendstilsenteret

 (2009)


The reconstruction of the town centre of Ålesund after the town fire of 1904 gave the town a remarkably homogenous architecture: a striking, local interpretation of Art Nouveau concentrated in a limited area. The town’s architecture is of high artistic, architectural and cultural historic value. That is why, over the period 1985-2003, the Directorate for Cultural Heritage chose to list a total of ten Art Nouveau buildings in Ålesund.
