This spring we’re off on a journey, not on an exotic destination like Chandigarh or Naoshima, but to the Flemish hinterland where the names of the hamlets vaguely sounds familiar and where cyclists tracks are guiding us.
The eight buildings of the trip vary in typology – from hotel to an industrial building into a village hall or a cultural center – and the ride takes us to places where we would not make a special detour.
