The building was contructed in 1953 by Willy Van Hove, who bequeathed it later to the FAB and the UPA-BUA, the two professional associations that he was presiding. The Architects’House is a forum for architecture, open to any activity that promotes architecture and related arts and crafts. The FAB (Federation of professional Associations in Belgium) and her 3 members AriB, BVA and UWA, as well as the CUB and the UPA-BUA, are seated on the upper floors, with the CIAUD (A+), the CERAA and the FUB.
