Architecture - Literature to remember the Great War
Belgian architect Wim Supply realized an integration project in Zonnebeke,
a village in Flanders' Fields, the batllefields of the Great War.
In the Chateau Park, where you find the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917,
he built a cortensteel building to house the youth library of Zonnebeke.
Not only the color of the building refers to the war, but he also put the text of
a poessay by Jan Theuninck on its wall.This text, Tyne Cot, refers to Tyne Cot
Cemetery, the largest cemetery for Commonwealth forces on the continent.
Through 30 years of experience, Wim Supply became a most respected
architect in Belgium : In 2003 he was the architect of a coastal project,
named Literaal, where poems where put on dikes and public places alongside
the belgian North Sea coast.
