Item description for Brussels: A Manifesto Towards the Capital of Europe by Pier Vittorio Aureli, Joachim Deklerck, Martino Tattara, Veronique Patteeuw & Mario Tronti...
The fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome is the fiftieth birthday of the "European project." Here an international team of 16 architects and urban planners associated with the important Dutch architecture think-tank, the Berlage Institute, asks how the city of Brussels can do justice to its mission as the capital of the continent. What image does Brussels want to project as a capital city within the European Union and beyond? What are the indisputable qualities of the European presence in Brussels? How can Brussels consciously do justice to its European mission and be a true embodiment of the European political project? Brussels: A Manifesto is an exceptionally visionary project, presenting a poetic, engrossing and magical image of Europe's communal capital city. With contributions by prominent thinkers such as Mario Tronti, Elia Zenghelis, Pier Vittorio Aureli and Iwan Strauven, this volume presents a powerful standpoint that links architecture's representative role to the future of Europe.
