Tournai / Tournai is a lively city with an interesting architectural history, in which the Art Nouveau and Art Deco are also widely represented. Tournai is proud for some houses on the Avenue of Cutsem / Rue de Volontaires they are handed by Gustave Strauven, http://gustavestrauven.brussels/nl/de-architect
A student of Horta who then developed a very own style. The surprise, however, was that a house here was signed with 'Brothers Strauven . Upon examination, I found that he has designed several pieces of work together with his younger brother Felix.
The loction of the war memorial (WW1) on the avenue of Cutsem is right on this place, because Strauven him self died from the consequences of injuries sustained.
Other highlights: The Museum of Fine Arts, Architect: Victor Horta. Place Carbonelle 5 (George de Poore) 1903. And Boulevard Roi Albert; One 'catalogue' of what the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods contributed to urban beauty.
