The debate showed that our promotional efforts are working and that MAI is able to attract a large number of visitors to the building. Seeing on the spot what we have to offer is the best way to get people interested. We received a number of follow-up enquires about office and conference facilities.
On Tuesday 4 October
in the evening there was another public event which is even more important for the MAI. Korei
, an association of architects, has uncovered the value of the building as an example of modernistic architecture. This will be discussed at their big event “Brussels Biennale of Modern Architecture
” and this is followed on Saturday 8 October by three guided visits for the public to go around the office space and the conference facilities. Naturally we are hoping that this cooperation will continue and that the association will be able to provide us with advice about how to make improvements in the building in order to preserve and enhance its architectural value.
