BRUEGEL’S EYE: reconstructing the landscape

Gijs Van Vaerenbergh - Study for a windmill

InfoRoutesPlaces of interest

The architectural duo Gijs Van Vaerenbergh designed a windmill made of reinforced steel, inspired by Bruegel's line drawings. In several of Pieter Bruegel's paintings and engravings, windmills feature prominently, such as in The Procession to Calvary in 1568. The light construction represents the earlier relationship between the productive landscape and the village character that has long since disappeared. The work stands in an open landscape and is visible from a distance.
