Our mission as a non-profit organisation is to highlight the architectural heritage of Brussels, and hence to contribute to its preservation. We try our best to fulfil this mission through various events such as: the Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco (BANAD) Festival, our exceptional program of Art Nouveau mansions openings, training programs for our guides, and more recently, the Brussels Biennale – Neoclassic (BBN) and Brussels Biennale of Eclectic Architecture (BBEA). All our activities are produced in collaboration with our founding member associations: ARAU, Arkadia, Brussels Chatterguides, Pro Velo ...
