Construction Bruges Triennial 2024 starts


In the coming weeks, Bruges Triennial 2024 will temporarily reshape Bruges from its appearance. The twelve monumental art and architecture installations will soon rise in the city and in Zeebrugge.

The way in which these works are created is very different: the installation by Shingo Masuda + Katsuhisa Otsubo Architects takes shape brick by brick on the chosen site in the Sint-Janshospitaalpark, for Bangkok Project Studio large cranes come into play, Iván Argote's work is then on its way to Belgium by boat, and Mariana Castillo Deball designs and models from her studio in Berlin.

We marked the start of the works on Tuesday, Feb. 20, with a first spade cutting on the site along Hoefijzerlaan, across the street from Koning Albert I Park, where Bangkok Project Studio's installation will be located: an eighteen-meter-tall contemporary clock tower with three wooden platforms that will face downtown, West Bruges and Sint-Michiels.

We are already looking forward to seeing Bangkok Project Studio's work and the eleven other installations take shape in the coming days and weeks! Open for the public from April 13 in Bruges and Zeebrugge.
