rue Sainte-Louise 81, 7301 Boussu · Hornu, MONS, BELGIUM
Grand-Hornu is an old industrial mining complex - a remarkable reminder of the Industrial Revolution. Built between 1810 and 1830 by Henri De Gorge.
It is a real urban project, an example of functional town-planning unique on the European continent at the start of the great era of industrialisation. Grand-Hornu is a complex where we find balance and harmony between the stylistic and functional aspects of the architecture.
