After years of argument workers have begun taking apart Tournai’s Bridge of Holes

The dismantling of Tournai’s gothic Bridge of Holes to make room for larger boats down the Scheldt river has been met with solemn protest and a withering attack on local politicians by a minister in Belgium’s federal government.

After years of argument over the controversial project, a crane attached to a barge was deployed from 6am on Friday morning to take apart the three arches of the Pont des Trous as a local cellist played mournfully on the river bank.

The Runit Dome, also called “Cactus Dome” or locally “The Tomb“, is a 115 m (377 ft) diameter, 46 cm (18 in) thick dome of concrete at sea level, encapsulating an estimated 73,000 m3 of radioactive debris, including some plutonium-239. The debris stems from nuclear tests conducted in the Enewetak Atoll by the United States between 1946 and 1958. You can read more about that in “The Poisoned Paradise Island“.

The Spanish architect’s masterpiece is still unfinished but there is now a chance that its central towers will be completed

Property owners have a new yardstick for measuring their frustration over building permit requests that are lost in the labyrinth of local government bureaucracy.

Barcelona city hall has finally issued a work permit for the unfinished church designed by architect Antoni Gaudí, 137 years after construction started on the Sagrada Família basilica.

PM says rebuilt cathedral should reflect ‘techniques and challenges of our times’

The French prime minister, Edouard Philippe, has announced an international architecture competition to rebuild the spire of Notre Dame Cathedral.

The 93-metre spire collapsed on Monday in a fire that began at its base and spread through the cathedral’s ribbed roof, made up of hundreds of oak beams, some dating back to the 13th century.
