PXL-MAD School of Arts a2o designs winning proposal for the PXL educational campus in Hasselt
The new art school on the Gouverneur Verwilghensingel in Hasselt does not present itself as one would expect from a typical institute on a city circular road. A fairly closed façade on the road side exchanges the characteristic glass case architecture for room for mystery. After all, the arts should not be displayed as vulgar merchandise. With a deliberate contrariness, the art school prefers to address itself to the challenging environment of the urban campus rather than to the domain of the passing cars.
