    The original red and white tiles are a bold statement. I too like that the designers took the ‘non-earth friendly’ energy site and reused to re-create a ‘greener’ site for tourist to visit.
    I know something else that is black but ‘green’ the Aeron Stool I can hardly believe that it’s 94% recyclable!

    The c-mine site is located near the city of ‘Genk’
    So:
    their stunning C-MINE renovation in Brussels
    should be
    their stunning C-MINE renovation in Genk

    and
    exploring Gent’s carbon past.
    should be

    Love the site, greeting from Belgium

    Some corrections:
    C-Mine is located at the mine site of Winterslag near Genk, not Gent, those cities are 150 km apart. It is also not located near Brussels; Genk and Brussels are 100 km apart.
