Worldwide acclaimed Aires Mateus delivered an architectural piece of art dedicated for formation of future architects in Tournai, Belgium.

The building of Architecture Faculty in Tournai stands on a historical city block, on a meeting place between buildings from different identities and periods coexist. The architects of Aires Mateus aimed to blend the new building into the existing structure, defining new modern volume.

„All the existing buildings are connected vertically and horizontally throughout the block. Inside, public functions are sheltered, like the foyer and auditorium, operating not only as passage spaces and meeting places, but also as a part of a new identity”, the architects standing behind the project explain.
