The failed Steen
We really don't like this ...
"Les goûts et les couleurs, ça ne se discute pas!" (tastes and colours are not debatable) Everyone has their own opinion of what is good and bad, beautiful and ugly, successful and unsuccessful. An expression that is certainly appropriate when it comes to Antwerp's Steen.
(The Steen is Antwerp's oldest building, it's the cradle of the city; it's called the "Steen" - Stone - because at the time it was the only stone building amidst wooden houses)
