The campus is located on the Antwerp ring road and was designed in the 1960s as a conservatoire by Leon Stynen, a well-known Belgian architect. The original campus included two large concert halls/theatres around a large courtyard. Over the last fifty years, this building has developed into a major international arts campus where music, theatre, dance, and architecture are created, practised and studied.
