In 2012 Luster published Belgium's Best Buildings, an elegant and easy-to-use pocket guide for architecture fans and for everyone who is curious about architecture in Belgium. That same year, the book was nominated as 'One of the most inspiring architecture books of 2012' by Architectura.be and The Word Magazine presented it as one of 'Six of Belgium's Best Travel Guides'. The concept of the book hasn't changed for this new edition: starting from the Top Ten lists of renowned Belgian architects and architecture critics, it presents the best Belgian buildings (completed after 1900) with a photo and a short text in English and Dutch. Also the lists of the architects are included the book. This new edition contains over 20 new lists, 15 extra buildings, and of course a slightly different selection.
The result is an interesting mix of well-known contemporary buildings such as the MAS museum in Antwerp, historical must-sees and less obvious buildings, such as a modernist chapel or an architect s house.
Text in English and Dutch.
