My former school

The Academy of Architecture on the Waterloo square still stands since 1655 designed by Hendrik de Keyzer as a house to give food and peat to the poor of the city. The side building was the warehouse were the goods were stored.In 1809 it became the royal printery and the side building an arsenal of the army. In 1946 the Academy settled here and is still today.
