Patrick Bribosia Past To Future : La Grande Carriere Wincqz
This book documents the conversion and restoration project of the Grande Carrière Wincqz in Soignies, Belgium.
Built in the 19th century to excavate the world-renowned Belgian blue stone, today, the quarry is home to an ambitious project: the Pôle de la Pierre, a training centre specialising in the stone industry. The book covers the transformation of the site in three essays:
– a photographic essay by Marie Noëlle Dailly exploring the interior and exterior spaces and landscapes of the transformed site
– a conceptual essay inscribing the Soignies project in the more general context of the reuse of industrial heritage;
– a graphic essay that reconstructs the transformation of the site as a process of place-making as well as a collective process of meaning-making by means of documents, photographs of the construction phases, drawings, and sketches.
