Christian de Portzamparc. Hergé Museum. Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Pritker prize winner (1994), Christian de Portzamparc made his childhood dreams come true with this museum that pays hommage to Hergés most iconic comic strip creation: Tintin. All of his vast adventures that once cradled and enchanted my own childhood, now amuse me in this adventurous walk along the four different characterized parts of the building. The simple lined comic strips acquire a new third dimension.  In the inside it's like becoming a new character because of the playful forms and coloured walls that resemble Hergés drawings.

"I said to myself, from this point on, that the museum was obviously a tribute to Hergé, but also as much a game played with Hergé, or a letter to Hergé.”
- Christian de Portzamparc
