50th anniversary Flemish urban planning law

Coming up: great talk&film event at De Singel (Antwerp)

‘On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the urban planning law (1962), the Flemish Architecture Institute’s Centre for Flemish Architectural Archives (CVAa) is programming a series of talks and films. You can see four films from the 1950s to the 1970s, each introduced by an expert in postwar urban planning and urbanisation. How did the urban planning law come into being? Why did it take so long for such a law to appear in Belgium? What effect did it have? You will get the answers in these films and talks.’
