Train World

Brussels

Brief/Challenges

Train World is Belgium’s national train museum which opened on the 25th September this year after many years of planning and construction. The opening ceremony was attended by Philippe, King of Belgium. 

Train World is located within Schaerbeek station, one of Brussels’ historic secondary stations, incorporating a new 8,000m2 building to house the exhibitions and utilising the fully restored central hall from 1913, which serves as the welcome area. The famous artist, illustrator, designer and scenographer François Schuiten has devised the displays for the future museum together with the Brussels design company Expoduo.

Commission

Paragon was commissioned to design and build the scenography and our workscope included scenery, props, dioramas, figurative, set dressing, cementitious plaster spraying and the design and build of bespoke railway interactives. 

The scenography contract was awarded to us by Potteau Labo, market leaders in the field of laboratory furniture, interior fit- out of hotels, museums and exhibitions. Our scenographic team used sprayed cementitious plaster on site, applying over 92,000 individual pieces of ballast around three engines in one of the main galleries.
