Brussels 2040 Three visions for a metropolis Friday 16.03 - Sunday 15.04.2012 Centre for Fine Arts What will Brussels be like in 2040 if its demographic growth continues? How will people get around the city if the motor car is no longer a sustainable means of transport? How can we reduce the social divide and avoid a dual city? How can we offer everyone an opportunity to live and work in the city with dignity? How can we coordinate the development of Brussels with its hinterland? Faced with all these questions, the Brussels-Capital Region turned to three teams of international experts, made up of architects, town planners, and landscape architects, among others. The Brussels 2040: Three Visions for a Metropolis exhibition shows the approaches taken by these three teams via videos, models, photographs, and urban master plans, presented in a scenic design by Lhoas & Lhoas architects, in collaboration with Codefrisko. Previously unseen short films, directed by the journalists Robin Ramaekers and Jo Ackermans, present each of the three visions. International teams: 51N4E, l'AUC, Bureau Bas Smets (with Mint, Chôros, and Urban Solutions), Studio 012 Bernardo Secchi Paola Viganò, (with CREAT, Egis Mobilité, Technische Universität München -- Dept. of Building Climatology & Building Services, IDEA Consult, and Karbon'),KCAP Architects&Planners (with ARUP, Systematica SpA, and ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles]) Exhibition design: Lhoas & Lhoas architects in collaboration with Codefrisko
