Abstract (in English)

This paper is intended to give an insight in the principal results of a five year research project on the Belgian reconstruction after the first world war. This collective work which amounted into a large exhibition, a book and a film for television, has indeed brought some clarification as to the role of monuments and the significance of style in this reconstruction of completely devastated sites
