100 years of Garden Cities in Brussels

From 17 March to 29 May 2022, at various locations in Brussels.

In 2022, the Garden Cities of Brussels will celebrate their centenary. From March to May, the Culture and Heritage Services of the City of Brussels join forces to organize a series of activities that highlight this heritage, unique in Belgian architectural history.

Garden Cities in Brussels?

The concept of Garden Cities originated in 19th century England. It was soon picked up in Brussels, where large, special residential areas were built, which made a transition between the countryside and the city. The Garden Cities had to compensate for the shortage of housing, which arose after the devastation of the First World War.

Well-known examples are the Paroisse Garden City in Haren, Verregat and Mutsaard in Laeken or Mariëndaal in Neder-Over-Heembeek.
