"Cityscape"

For about one year, Brussels’ Quartier Louise is enlivened by CITYSCAPE, an impressive wooden sculpture by the Belgian artist Arne Quinze. The 18 meter-high, 40 meters long and 25 metres wide artwork is built on 12 meter-high wooden stilts. It’s encouraging people to interact, boosting new energy to a somewhat discarded neighborhood. Floating in the air, it provides a shelter to curious visitors, a place for contemplation and silence.
