Abstract
Reconstruction architecture in the district of Zemst During the first two weeks of World War I the municipalities of Elewijt, Eppegem, Hofstade, Weerde and Zemst were right in the frontline.Buidlings were so badly damaged it even drew disaster tourism. Churches of Eppegem , Weerde, and Zemst were demolished, schools, town halls and a large number of private houses were severely damaged. The reconstruction of the churches was supervised by the royal commission of monumentd. althoug generaly a reconstruction "a l'identique " was practiced after WWI in the case of Weerde and Eppegem the churhes were enlarged and embellished . The St. Peter's church of Zemst was rebuiltby architect Alfred Minner in an unconventional classicisic design. For the reconstruction of public and private buildings often Brussels architects were engaged. They took the opportunity to introduce a regional style. The designs by architect J.Diongre were hardly appreciated by the locals. The model as lounched by the farmers' union in 1915 for the reconstruction of farm labourors' houses was often copied and started a kind of architecture which, until today, defines the aspect of these villages.
