Shortly after his appointment as professor at the University of Ghent in 1925, Henry Van de Velde was commissioned to develop an urban design for a representative residential and commercial development on the left bank of the Scheldt in Antwerp. This project, of which only a few perspectives are preserved, was part of an extensive urban expansion concept that included a tunnel for traffic under the river Scheldt. Kessels visualised Van de Velde’s design in this collage, in which he combined a group of people in the foreground with a perspective drawing by the architect in the background.
