Considered to be one of the most beautiful European sites of 19th century industrial architecture, the former Grand-Hornu colliery has been listed since 2012 as UNESCO World Heritage.
The CID – Centre for Innovation and Design at Grand-Hornu – aims to promote contemporary design through a programme of exhibitions and outreach activities.
The MACS and the CID propose here a selection of design objects, artist litho-engravings, exhibition catalogues and works for both adults and children about the themes explored in the exhibitions.
Accessible to the general public since March 2007, the documentation centre at Grand-Hornu proposes an archive containing some 9,000 volumes covering current arts, design, architecture and industrial archaeology, which is available for consultation on site.
This restaurant – and cafeteria – is located in the heart of the Grand-Hornu site and proposes cuisine at the crossroads of cultures.
