CIVA is of course very concerned about the situation regarding the coronavirus. Following the measures proposed by the National Security Council on March 12th, it was decided, in consultation with our partners, to adjust our programming. The library will remain closed until April 19th. Thank you for your understanding.

The CIVA library has a large collection of nearly 50.000 old and recent books, hundreds of magazine titles and documentation files dedicated to architecture, urban planning, city history, landscape architecture, gardens and urban ecosystems. The department of Modern Architecture gathers the library of the Archives d’Architecture Moderne (in Ixelles) and Sint-Lukasarchief (in Schaerbeek). The Garden, Landscape and Urban Ecosystem department gathers the collection of the René Pechère library and the documentation centre Paul Duvigneaud. The library staff is at your disposal to help you get the most out of your research.
