This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
A nice building with classrooms, a dark room for photographers, a nice attic to stroll around, even a basement. Great to walk around in, but I reckon this building will soon be boarded up. I got in through some recently smashed windows, but that will not last long. There is another way in, but that will require some climbing over very high walls...
 Basic Information
Type: Building
Status: Demolished
Accessibility: All boarded up know, no known way in (edit 07/2009)
Recommendation: check it out if you're nearby

    nice old electrics, a basement, two nice attics (including scary-noise-making resident cat), outdoor shithouses... the works. The building is fairly empty, though, besides the odd chair and such it has little interesting features

    It is an art educational center, a school for crafts like ceramics, glass blowing and stuff like that. Must have closed fairly recently.

    Mechelen bezit een opleidingscentrum voor kunstambachten. Vroeger heette het centrum RIKA (Rijksinstituut voor KunstAmbachten). De naam werd enkele jaren geleden gewijzigd in IKA, Instituut voor Kunst en Ambacht

    Mensen met kunstzinnige aspiraties kunnen hier hun ei kwijt. Na de betaling van een bescheiden inschrijfgeld, kunnen zij twee maal per week les volgen in één van de zes ateliers.
