TIKB: Mining school

Pastorijstraat, Houthalen-Centrum Architect: Isia Isgour 1956 - 1958

This building is purely modernistic. The structure is clearly visible: concrete frame made with areas in glass, flat-surfaced flint, metal windows and doors, in a rhythmical alternation of beams and columns.

The building testifies to the sophistication and optimism typical of the Expo '58 period.

Originally it was intended as a school for young mine workers. 

Today it is a services centre, into which among others the Centre for Adult Education is integrated.
