Francesca Torzo’s addition to Art Museum Z33 is unconventional in many respects – from the façade surfacing in lozenge-shaped brick tiles to the entrance situation, which leads through an almost windowless frontage into a small forecourt. There is also much to be discovered inside: high rooms and low, spacious or narrow, well-lit or dark, alternating along a varied circuit through the museum. “Wing 19” thus forms both a continuation of and antithesis to “Wing 58”, the museum’s existing building designed by architect Gustaaf Daniëls.
