What does building higher mean for the Ghent skyline?


In collaboration with:

With the support of:

There are a lot of substantial building projects in the pipeline in Ghent, both reconversions of old tower blocks and innovative collective buildings are going up high. We take you along for a story about the (future) skyline of Ghent and question what it means to live in a city higher up.

SkYline. Highrise in the Low Countries

Hans Wilschut

This lecture is in collaboration with the STAM and the *Ghent City Architect * as part of the expo SkYline. Highrise in the Low Countries.

You recognize people by their silhouette, cities by their skyline. In the expo ‘SkYline. High-rise buildings in the Low Countries’, STAM (Stadsmuseum Gent) challenges our – often casual – view of the city. What is behind the erratic lines of stone, steel and glass? And why do we keep building high, higher, highest? SkYline’ is an invitation to stand still and experience. Both inside and outside the expo. During lectures and a bicycle tour, among other things, you can delve deeper into the theme of high-rise. Do, Understand and Watch The SkYline: discover the full programme at ‘SkYline’ runs until May 21, 2023.
