TREES OF CIRCULAR MOTION — THE STREETS OF LA ROUE
In the streets of La Roue, eight round trees arise, in whose tops we can read a poem that evokes the area we are visiting.
Het Rad in Anderlecht is a pleasant garden district comprising small workers' houses. It was built in the 1920s, based on the Dutch and British models, to offer workers from the cities a healthy environment to live in. Since then, an interesting social mix has developed, of newcomers and old Belgians, tenants and owner-occupiers. The district extends from Bergensesteenweg to the canal, and is crossed by the Ghent-Brussels railway line. Courses in catering, hotel and agriculture are offered at the COOVI and CERIA campus.
In February 2013, the permanent sculpture Trees of Circular Motion was inaugurated during a happening at Lustplein.
