In 1933 Ghent University commissioned Henry van de Velde to design a library and a building for the Higher Institute of Art History and Archaeology. He opted for an extremely unorthodox tower and applied to it his formula involving light, perfect proportions and superior materials.

The Boekentoren (Tower of Books / Book-Tower) is currently in the midst of restoration.
