Quartier Louise, once Brussels' luxury district, lost a lot of its reputation over the last decades. An association was founded to revitalise the neighbourhood. A 5000 sqm wasteland site was put at the disposal of Belgian artist Arne Quinze (a.k.a. art director, furniture designer, interior decorator, creator of atmospheres) to bring life to the disconsolate district. It took him 33 wooden stilts, 60 km of beams and 240.000 nails to perform his task. The result is a giant wooden sculpture, 40 m long, 25 m wide, 18 m high, described by the artist himself as "the capture of one moment in a form that is in full development". It is meant as an invitation to contemplation in this otherwise hectic neighbourhood, with the heavy traffic on the adjacent ring way. But above all it attracts local residents, passers-by, visitors and tourists, chatting, playing, lounging in the ever-changing patterns of light and shade. In a year from now, all the used wood will be fully recycled.
