In 1893, Victor Horta drew up the plans for the Tassel Hotel. For art historians, this date corresponds to the birth of Art Nouveau, a style that would spread throughout the Western world until 1914. Yet behind this term lies a multitude of architects and designers with a singular, personal and sometimes antithetical expression. Behind this title, the exhibition seeks to question Victor Horta's approach without any considerations of style or belonging to a movement.
