Belgium and Portugal come together in architects’ campus
This architecture school in Belgium occupies the interior of a historical city block where buildings with different identities and from periods coexist.
Designed by Lisbon-based studio Aires Mateus, the new all-white structure has been positioned to unite the school’s campus.
The campus is located in the city of Tournai near the French border.
The site’s existing buildings, which include two industrial structures and a former convent, are connected vertically and horizontally throughout.
