Exhibition Stoclet 1911 Restitution

This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between, the ULB - architecture faculty La Cambre Horta and the Art & History Museum. It was initiated during Brussels' Art Nouveau Year in 2023 and is presented as part of the Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The aim of this exhibition is to take visitors on a tour of the interiors of the Stoclet House through a digital reproduction of the tour presented as a film. Stoclet House has been on the very select list of Brussels buildings placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List since 2009, but is still little known to the general public.

The virtual reproduction shows the house as it was between 1911 and 1918 and is based on precise archival sources and a detailed architectural analysis of its spaces. This task kept the team of experts* busy for almost two years. The realism of the reproduction leads to an immersive experience which allows visitors to see the Stoclet House as it was from 1911 to 1918: we discover it exactly as it had been conceived by married couple Adolphe Stoclet and Suzanne Stevens. Now, for the duration of this exhibition, we are all their guests.

The exhibition runs until 14 April 2024 at the Art & History Museum, Parc du Cinquantenaire 10, 1000 Brussels.
