Barozzi Veiga in Brussels


Albeit decimated during the Shoah and attacked on several occasions in recent times, the Jewish community of Belgium asserts its presence and importance in the country’s history by means of a small museum which in the wake of an international competition will be erected by Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga. Continuing their already impressive trajectory abroad (see Arquitectura Viva 218), the tandem proposes an extension discreetly integrated into the original bourgeois building, but crowns it with a belvedere that also serves to confer on the intervention a recognizable identity of its own.
