A documentary TV series by Gilles Coton, Olivier Magis and Sofie Benoot, 3x52' / 1x90', 2015


Is Belgium the most ugly country in the world ? Belgium’s urban landscape is pretty special, to say the least. On any road you drive, any city or region you cross, you will find a bizarre and intriguing form of urbanization that is so one of the kind, you won’t find anything like it anywhere else in the world. Actually it’s rather the lack of urbanization that is so unique and it is this particular aspect that is essential to Belgium’s typical look. Archibelge ! takes an unusual look at the thought behind and the lifestyle of people living in everyday Belgian architecture. We travel through the countryside and through towns until we reach Belgian coast in search of unusual buildings seen through the eyes of people who use them on a day-to-day basis.
