To mark the centennial of his birth, an exhibition in Belgium celebrates the career of Renaat Braem, the only Belgian architect to have worked in Le Corbusier’s Paris studios, inaugurating the new wing of the deSingel Museum designed by Stéphane Beel.

Renaat Braem 1910 - 2010 Numerous initiatives were held in 2010 to celebrate the centennial of the birth of architect Renaat Braem, concluding on January 31 2011. The curators of the exhibition (Sofie De Caigny, Elke Hoornaert and Katrien Vandermarliere) underway in Antwerp go over the important phases in the Belgian architect’s life with an exhibition focusing on a number of concepts fundamental to his work: utopia and context, the collective and the individual, the visionary aspect of his spatial intuitions, evolution towards biomorphous forms, and his ecological thought. The exhibition includes projects for private homes, public buildings and, above all, social housing projects by Renaat Braem to reveal his social and spatial analysis, his meticulous use of materials and his sculptural visual language containing elements of great significance for contemporary architectural discourse.
