The interbellum: 1932

This is an special entry for the year 1932. In that year the church of Saint Jean Baptiste (Molenbeek) was completed. It was designed by architect Diongre (see my post on 1927). This church is one of the 3 Brussels’ churches built in reinforced concrete.

I took the pictures after a guided tour of the church on the 2012 “Journée du Patrimoine” in the Brussels’ Region. It was the last guided tour of the day and I was the last visitor. I was the only one in the building, apart from the security staff.

As you will see this is a remarkable art-deco building.
