Architects at Play is the result of a research process into play and the imagination, built experiments and mythological narratives. The exhibition is essentially centred on the idea of ‘Creating Worlds’. It attempts to bring together two characters: the architect and the child.

The museum of Folklore (Cross-border life) of Mouscron evokes, through a collection of rich and varied objects and documents, the economic, social and daily life, as well as the intangible heritage, of the inhabitants of a cross-border region, mainly between 1850 and 1950. The museum's extension project came from an architectural service contract supported by the Architecture Cell of the Wallonia Brussels Federation in 2010. This competition initially intended to respond to a simple request for a programmatic extension of the existing museum with a reception area and new toilets. It resulted in the construction of a new main building.
