The exhibition OPERATIONAL AESTHETICS has thoroughly researched Brussels’ so called Neighbourhood Contracts. CIVA took the opportunity of the upcoming anniversary of those Neighbourhood Contracts – a planning tool specific to Brussels – to fully understand the legal devices, processes and political visions that shape the city, its urban planning and architectural projects. At the heart of this approach lies the fundamental process used to create a city, placing the question of its exegesis before it has been drawn on paper or constructed in reality.
