Activity

1894 > Bruxelles
° 1.4.1862; + 22.10.1922. Professor of descriptive geometry at the "Université libre de Bruxelles". His friend Victor Horta built him a townhouse at Rue de Turin, 6 (present-day Rue Paul Emile Janson) designed on art nouveau principles. The building is a landmark in the development of domestic architecture. It was also constructed to take Tassel's passion for photography (and later cinematography) into account: a darkroom on the entre-sol gave onto an area with a balcony, enabling Tassel to project images onto a screen unfurled below in the ground-floor hallway.
