Art Nouveau, from the Spring to the Ponds

Description

The Defacqz district is home to several works by major architects and shows the first impulses of Art Nouveau architecture in Brussels.

After a few stops around rue Defacqz and avenue Louise, the tour takes you to the peaceful district of Ixelles ponds to discover other architectural treasures.

Discover unsuspected jewels in neighborhoods crossed every day by thousands of people and which have seen, despite the urban (r)evolutions, their beauty and their wealth preserved!

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA SEE ?
The tour “Art Nouveau, from the Spring to the Ponds” takes you to the heart of Ixelles, from the Defacqz district to the Ixelles ponds, to discover the architects of the first and second generation of Art Nouveau. Let us tell you the urban history of these neighborhoods next to Avenue Louise and Abbaye de La Cambre by (re-)discovering many houses and private mansions.

On the program of the walk, among others…

– Tassel Hotel, by Victor Horta ;
– Solvay Hotel, by Victor Horta;
– Otlet Hotel, by Octave van Rysselberghe and Henry Van de Velde;
– Ciamberlani Hotel, by Paul Hankar;
– Other works by Albert Roosenboom, Ernest Delune, Ernest Blerot ;
– But also many small stories and anecdotes!

We will not go into the houses and mansions (most of the are occupied), but photographic supports are provided to give you a better idea of the interior of the buildings. Because Art Nouveau is a “Total Art” which certainly does not stop at the facades!
