An Art Nouveau facade designed by the famous Belgian architect Victor Horta lies greening with mold and covered in trash in a Brussels warehouse, forgotten only five years after it was last exhibited to the public. The dismantled front of Hotel Aubecq, a mansion designed by Horta in 1899 and torn down in 1950, three years after his death, was laid out on the floor of the warehouse in 2011 for an exhibition commemorating the architect's 150th birthday.Finding a new purpose for the massive 15-meter-wide, 11-meter-high facade is not easy.
