‘The Sequence’, an 80-metre-long and 15-metre- high sculpture immediately provided the direct vicinity of the Flemish parliament with a new feeling of zest. Since November 2008, a gigantic wooden construction has dominated the Louvain Road and connects the Flemish parliament to the House of Flemish Representatives. A bended and twisting structure seems to be penetrating both buildings and therewith gives the illusion of both buildings being inextricably connected with each another.
The structure, located above the centre platform and supported by wooden posts ranging from between 8 and 16 metres high, hovers above the
street. Arne Quinze’s construction, placed in front of the Flemish parliament, which already has a rich tradition of gathering modern works of art, provides a unique billboard. people deliberately come down to this neighbourhood to experience the manner in which the sculpture explicitly changes the street scene.
‘The Sequence’ builds a bridge between people. The visible connection between the Flemish parliament and its Administrative Centre reflects the connection between all the different neighbours in Brussels. A meeting between all cultures present in our capital.
