Two new projection rooms have been excavated for the Royal Belgian Film Archives under Victor Horta’s Centre for Fine Arts. This makes it possible for the ‘Salles des Arts Décoratifs’ to be restored, as provided for in the master-plan for the restoration of the building. The collection of film apparatus will be rehoused in a Wunderkammer, which will stand detached in the room. Rooms for new digital image production were also created.
