Summer Workshop

Challenging Modernism is a summer workshop about the future of late modernist buildings. From 12 to 16 September 2022, the summer school offers a practice-based learning and networking event centred on modernist patrimony in Brussels. We investigate how we can challenge modernism in the face of contemporary demands. We investigate if its premises are still valid for the grand challenges of the 21st century:

How do qualities of young, modernist patrimony measure up to its challenges?


How can we prove the qualities to governments, owners and to the wider audience?


How can we challenge modernism by testing it to contemporary demands?
