The Summer School "Brussels, a Journey at the Art of Art Nouveau" is a two-week summer programme in English organised by the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre Horta at Université libre de Bruxelles. It combines lectures and exclusive site visits in the Brussels area led by internationally renowned experts.

From the beginning of Art Nouveau to its peak, from private mansions to public schools, from furniture to ornamentation, from destruction to preservation, you will undertake a journey at the heart of Art Nouveau and discover Brussels through a unique lens.

Target group

This programme is designed for students (minimum 3rd Bachelor), graduate students, PhD students and young professionals with a background or profound interest in architecture, arts, history and urban renovation.

Course aim

At the end of this course, participants will be able to make the link between Art Nouveau in Belgium, its place of birth, and its European extensions. By meeting with key stakeholders in architectural history, renovation, preservation and public policies, they will have shed lights on the full scope of the importance of the movement at the time and how this “revolution” in Art and Architecture is still relevant today.
