BIM-BOM Belgian Immigration Museum - Belgian Opportunity for Modernisation

Int. competition / Brussels Courthouse: Imagine the Future (TPD&A co-op.)
Brussels, Belgium, 2010

The present changes in European society under the pressure of continuous immigration flows are at the forefront of an extraordinary opportunity in Brussels – the Capital of the European Community – to be offered the Palace of Justice for its urgent needs of cultural and social integration.
In this aim we propose to create the European Immigration Museum in order to associate the artistic activities of the cultural mosaic represented by the immigrated population with the juristic structures.
The aim of these newly created structures is to bring the necessary cultural, social and juristic assistance in order to help a better and harmonious integration of the arriving populations to Belgium with various cultural and political backgrounds.
