> RETROFITTING THURSDAYS: Book launch “Post-war building materials in Brussels”

On 10 December 2015 project team RetroCo presents the result of three years of research work with the launch of the thrilingual book and website on post-war building materials.

The book consists of eight chapters, each dealing with a specific material or building product that was typical, invented or commonly applied in the post-war period. Each of the eight chapters contains information on the historic development (visually enhanced by means of a timeline), various manufacturing techniques, physical properties, visual aspects, etc.

The presentation of the book and website is followed with a discussion on the subject with (inter)national renowned experts in the field.

Place to be is the CIVA (Kluisstraat 55 Rue de l’Ermitage) in Brussels. Start at 6pm.
Participation to the event is free, but registration is required before December 1st, 2015 under ‘Upcoming events‘ on this website.
