This thesis explores the question, “How can the digital, mechanized world of today, help keep the tradition of handcrafted Belgian lace alive?” The typology for the examination of this problem is a museum/learning center in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. The Theoretical Premise/Unifying Idea that guides the research is, “Architecture can help keep the tradition of handcrafted Belgian lace alive.” The Project Justification is, “A museum and learning center for Belgian lace will help create interest in the art through informing the public of its history and teaching them how to create their very own lace. These things will encourage the visitors to add to and extend the history and traditions of handcrafted Belgian lace.
