Discovering the history of Belgian female architects - Guided tour in Brussels city center with Elisabeth Gérard (Architecture that Challenges Norms, non-profit organization)

The itinerary of this guided tour highlights lesser-known buildings from post-war Brussels: from the 1950s to the contemporary era, in chronological order. This is an opportunity to cast a fresh eye on the city center and become aware of the built heritage in the area. The objective of this tour is also to disseminate and raise awareness about the names of female architects who have made an impact since the post-war period and to present the evolution of working conditions for women in the field of architecture.

Belgian modernity female architects - Guided tour of the Brugmann district with Elisabeth Gérard (Architecture that Challenges Norms, non-profit organization)

This tour sheds light on the role of women in the modernist movement in Brussels, with several emblematic achievements located in the Brugmann district. Let's explore these achievements, firstly through modernist works by women (often less famous but equally interesting), and secondly by discussing the roles that women may have had in projects attributed to men.
