ACE Walk and Talk
On 11 June, as part of the New European Bauhaus Festival, the Architects’ Council of Europe, with the support of its Belgian Member Organisations, organised a "walk & talk", a one-hour-and-a-half guided tour of the Tour & Taxis site (Brussels), followed by a one-hour Policy Debate. The guided tour and the policy debate aimed to discuss challenges raised by the New European Bauhaus in relation to Architecture and Urban Planning, first through concrete examples during the tour, and then from a political perspective during the debate.
