Beringen | Belgium
What a sight! The long line of carefully built individual showers in the miners’ washroom appears to be never-ending. Here every man had his own cabin. The progressive features on the site are mainly due to the fact that the colliery was built relatively late – shortly after 1900. For this reason it ...

Les Gueules Noires - the black faces: That’s the way the Walloons called their coal buddies. Italians, Czechs, Hungarians, Poles, Russians, Turks and of course Belgians labored in teams to feed the insatiable blast furnaces around Liege with coal. At the closing in 1980 Blegny mine was the oldest ...

Two silent pithead winding gears tower over the redbrick gable of the Bois de Cazier colliery near Charleroi.

In 1840 travelling by train was so incredibly new that there were no words to describe it. In those days railway platforms were referred to as “jutting balconies”, a train appeared to be a “string of carriages” and the locomotive was called a “steam dragon”. At least these are the words used by the ...

Why is it that a boot-last factory in rural Lower Saxony becomes a turning point in modern architecture?

Dust hangs in the air. It smells of oil and wool. Coffee mugs stand forgotten amongst the machines. Pieces of scribbled note paper are lying untidily around.
