built by modernist arch. huib hoste 1945 and christiaan vanderplaetse 1963,
has been known as a centre for artistic integration since 1990.
1. MUZE' UM L LIGHT & LANDSCAPE
in the context of the new afforestation plans for the region, c.i.c. aims to establish
a large view at the top of the zilverberg making an attractive venue for walkers, nature lovers and art lovers.
a willow avenue leads to the archeological site zilverberg.
an observation point will provide a panoramic view from altitude on the land
& the art experiments in the landscape.
proposal MUZE' UM L by architect marc van schuylenbergh
MUZE'UM L: LIGHT & LANDSCAPE
wil be a site to experience light and landscape with all the senses:
the building and the surrounding landscape will be split into east and west on the sunlight apogee,
creating so a light meridian.
the sunlight shining perpendicular to this meridian at approx 1:45 p.m. ( at 0:45 p.m. in winter) on this spot,
will not be visually impaired. this shadowless light effect will be amplified by an architectural split.
MUZE' UM L: A PLACE OF AND FOR MUZES.
the muze' um L is flexibly worked out to create a fresh contemporary and functional framework for
- research that has to do with light and landscape.
- exhibitions and meetings, musical performances and all kinds of artistic experiments.
estimated opening in summer 2014
MUZE' UM L: prior study
