Le chemin de fer dans la ville | Gares et urbanisation au nord-est de Bruxelles 1850-1930

Author: Alix Sacré


What was the impact of the development of the railroad on the urban morphology of Brussels?

What traces does the city still bear today? Contrary to popular belief, the tremendous growth of the railway network in the 19th century and the construction of ring lines sometimes constituted an obstacle to urbanization. While the stations encouraged urban development, the railroads crossing the city may have played the opposite role, hindering the development of entire neighborhoods.

This richly documented book invites us to explore the past in order to better understand the face of the contemporary city, through an original approach at the crossroads of historical, heritage and urban planning disciplines.
