ville, paysage urbain

Pauline Vanden Neste & Tom Lyon


The Brussels Canal has undergone numerous changes throughout history. Once, it served as a natural barrier for the city, but today, this former industrial district undergoing redevelopment represents a significant economical, social, and real estate asset for the Brussels of tomorrow.

The photographic series “Zones” is a visual exploration of the areas around the Brussels canal. Through the lenses of young photographers Pauline Vanden Neste and Tom Lyon, you are invited to discover areas of this emblematic district, the way it comes alive, and the people who live there.

Formerly an industrial center, these areas are now the scene of major urban change, particularly within the framework of the Canal Plan, which aims to revitalise waterfront areas and create new residential and commercial spaces.
