Abstract

Antwerp's town hall was officially opened in February 1565 and since then has been one of the city's most important icons, a very significant part of its heritage. In February 1936 the building was classified as a monument and since 1999 has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list as part of the group inscription of belfries in Belgium and France. The town hall is the most important early example of Renaissance architecture in the Low Countries, with its typically Flemish variation on the style of Florentine palazzi. At the time, it was a synthesis of the local gothic building tradition and the innovative Italian order for facades. On the occasion of its 450th anniversary and the departure of the administrative services from the town hall, Antwerp city council wants to restore the building to a more authentic form and function. The aim of the project is to optimise the operation of the town hall in terms of use and organisation and to reassign part of it to other activities, while taking account of the valuable elements that building history research has brought to light.
