Ugly Belgian Houses

I believe that you have to be proud of the country, region, city, neighbourhood, street, house,… you live at / in. Although, that sometimes seems not easy. Take this for example.

Ugly Belgian Houses is a project set up by Belgian blogger Hannes Coudenys. He noticed that in Belgium we have a lot of ugly houses. And when we talk about ugly, we talk about really ugly:

 

It is so ugly that it almost becomes beautiful to watch.

Hannes started his project in 2011 but needed to stop after 2 months because of angry lawer mails of architects who were not amused they appeared on his website. He paused the project for a year and then resumed in the summer of 2012.

It was a success.

It was so succesfull that eventually a book was published with ugly Belgian houses. Something to be proud of. Or not?

Some of my personal favorites:

Take me down to a Belgian city where the houses are green and look very shitty.
