Hi, and a warm homely welcome to Toerist Modernist.
Toerist Modernist was founded in 2019 by me, Gerlin Heestermans, and aims to put modernist heritage in Belgium on the map. From art deco over mid century to functionalism, brutalism, etc. - for such a small country we are spoilt with great architecture, and most of it stays unnoticed and under the radar. I intend to make these buildings accessible (both literally and figuratively) and bring them to people's attention.
I regularly organise guided tours inside Belgium's best kept modernist secrets. Tours are communicated through my newsletter, which you can subscribe to on the Contact page. On the Tours page you can find an overview of past visits.
Thanks to my regular visits to these extraordinary homes, I've built a database with locations you can rent. More info on the Locations page.
See you soon!
