Brussels is well known for its wide variety of buildings in the Art Deco style, which were built in the aftermath of the Great War in the 1920s and 1930s. In this book, the authors have created seven walking (or biking) itineraries that explore Art Deco and modernist architecture in neighbourhoods throughout the city. Several key architects are profiled, and the historical context of the period is discussed, offering readers new insights into the living heritage that lines the streets of Brussels.

A Brussels native with a degree in history, Cecile Dubois works as a guide-lecturer, organises guided tours and, for several years, helped organise the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Biennial, together with Voir et Dire Bruxelles. She has always been fascinated by the diversity and original forms of the architecture of the interwar period, specialising in its history. Sophie Voituron is a passionate architecture photographer, who understands the art of adding movement to otherwise rigid structures, revealing the soul of the buildings she photographs, much like other photographers might capture a person's soul in a portrait. She has worked with architects and urban planners for several years, promoting their work and highlighting the natural elegance of the buildings around us.
