Aula Magna

Aula Magna

The light is the Aula Magna’s main selling point. With its a vast glass house of 70 m long by 30 m wide, the building is on the edge of the lake that connects it to the town. Opened in 2001, this space offers a great venue for academic and corporate events, as well as cultural shows. The Aula Magna’s great hall, the Theater, can accommodate 850 to 1,100 people in front of its large stage of 380 m2.

Louvain-la-Neuve is a planned city in the municipality of Ottignies - Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, situated 30 km southeast of Brussels. This whole new city was built in 1971 to house the Catholic University of Leuven, which used to be located in Leuven, in the dutch region. To a great extent, Louvain-La-Neuve still lives following the rhythms of the university. This city is an example of the "automobile under" type of New Pedestrianism.
