The Open Cube – An initiative of the 101% project of
The Housing Company of the Brussels Capital Region (SLRB) and the Social Housing Compagny from Molenbeek-Saint-Jean (Le Logement Molenbeekois).
The artistic intervention is a dialogue between a « Corten » steel sculpture and photographs printed on tiles.
The sculpture and artistic intervention will be carried out on the Lavoisier housing site located at 44 – 50 rue Charles Malis
