Color in the city - Walking Madou

A photographers dream
Walking Madou, a project by the architects Su├Ęde 36, changed the once so busy and grey area between Place Madou and Place Saint-Josse into a colorful and car-free area.  So I went to walk my old neighborhood earlier this week.  What a joy it was, despite the drab weather.

The whole area will be refurbished and in the meantime everybody can enjoy the craziness and the abundance of yellow.  The yellow paint will last another two months.

I can only applaud the architects to creatively use a space under construction and hope similar projects will be seen in Brussels and other cities whilst the neighborhoods undergo major changes.
