The First Horta

Victor Horta is something like the patron-saint of Belgian architecture, and anybody with a passing interest in art nouveau or design should make a Horta to-do list in Brussels—starting with the Maison Autrique. The first building the young architect designed independently, it was requested by his friend and home owner, Eugene Autrique, to be straightforward and simple—yet the hallmarks of Horta stand through in the achievement. Horta was quite happy with this building, even if his others may be more ornate or sightseeing-worthy, because he had "pleased a friend." Purchased and renovated in the 1990s, this now-public museum is a dedication to the growth of Horta and his influence on the city.
