Beating heart of the city programme
For the city programme Biennale Interieur elected the Texture Museum site at the North Bridge, a renovated neighbourhood in Kortrijk that has all the assets to offer both international and local visitors an inspiring and surprising journey. The North Bridge site comprises firstly the Texture Museum building itself, a stunning architectural renovation in 2014 by noAarchitecten: a landmark alongside the river Lys.
About Texture Museum
TEXTURE tells the story of the flax and linen industry. It is a story about strong roots, about craftsmanship and entrepreneurship, about daring innovations and constantly re-inventing oneself. In three rooms, in an authentic flax distribution centre (1912) on the banks of the river Lys, you can learn about the revolutionary development induced by the flax industry in this region. The past will surprise you, while the stories of the present will amaze and inspire you.
