BRONKS is a theatre for young audiences in the centre of Brussels
It is a well-established player on the performing arts scene and is known both in Belgium and abroad for its high-quality productions and other work. The building, with its distinctive glass façade, was designed by the MDMA architectural firm. In 2011 it was in the finals for the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Prize and in 2012 it was nominated in the ‘Culture’ category for the World Architecture Award in Singapore. Although the design is austere, it also contains numerous playful elements such as rotating mirrored walls, a spectacular roof structure and rooms that communicate both with each other and the outside world. The optimal use of glass means the whole building is swathed in natural light.
BRONKS has a central location on Varkensmarkt, very close to Sint-Katelijneplein, Vlaamsesteenweg and Dansaertstraat. This is a lively neighbourhood with dozens of small cafés, restaurants, original shops and creatives. It is within walking distance of the Central Station, is close to Metro stations and has plenty of parking in the immediate surroundings.
The BRONKS building makes the best possible use of its available floor space, with rooms that can be used for various purposes.
