Schaerbeek- Bruxelles
Fermeture temporaire de la Maison Autrique à Bruxelles – du 16 février au 31 décembre 2015
Dates:16/02/2015-31/12/2015

En raison de travaux de restauration portant sur les façades et d’une actualisation de la scénographie, l’ouverture au public sera réduite dès le lundi 16 février 2015 et jusqu’à la fin de l’année. Durant cette période seuls seront possibles des événements ponctuels et visites sur rendez-vous, en fonction du calendrier du chantier.

Depuis dix ans, la Maison Autrique est ouverte au public grâce à la détermination conjointe de plusieurs amis et à l’intervention de la Commune de Schaerbeek qui s’est portée acquéreur du bien. François Schuiten et Benoît Peeters sont à l’origine du projet de réhabilitation de cette œuvre de jeunesse du célèbre Victor Horta. Ils en ont fait une « maison des maisons», une habitation poétique suspendue dans le temps.
