  • There has been much comment on the construction work, but as far as I'm concerned it is an absolute plus: the place attracts a lot of people and original activities. Whining can be only to square buildings is missing the zowiezo not in Flanders. Like so applause for an original concept!

  • Why angular roof!? ️ Mason Guildhall was the last... made it through to see the direction? Down went okay. I thought just monuments because it had a restaurant at the end. Lit up at night, beautiful, huh?!

  • Agreement, one truly has sought to reconcile modern architecture with the historical framework. Unfortunately, this design does not pass and every passer-by is faced with an attack on a destroyed iconic views. Still some decades patience and then a next generation this stinker, compassionately itself wondering what people end 20 ° century inspired.

  • Others have said that it sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the old buildings but I didn't notice that at the time; I just thought it was a great market venue and its being modern didn't jarr with me at all. The market itself was great with lots of food sellers in particular. Of course, the old town is beautiful and the buildings are charming. Ghent is a delightful city.
  • The building created controversy when raised. Very modern design with wood and concrete. However it really fits well in the medieval area and reminds clearly of the covered market placed from past time. Acoustic is quite good: public pianos, choirs or violinists will make good use of it.
  • Sticks out like a sore thumb between the historic building surrounding it. But I have to admit they hold some great events here. I'll never forget the mardi Grass during the festival of ghent!!!
  • Such an ugly modern building in the middle of a historical square with all these pretty historical buildings around it. They could have made something that would have fit better on such a place.
  • Controversial building at first. Modern, spacious construction that looks great. Fits in great with the old buildings.
