A great tribute to Jenny and Luc Peire! It was very impressive.I am impressed especially by the much fine work undertaken to bring this museum into being. A feather in the organizers' cap. P dK (07/05/2003)

What especially strikes us is the perfect harmony between Luc Peire's work that radiates peace and great sensitivity, and the modern, timeless architecture of the building. M&G M-DB (11.07.2003)

Si l’architecture se met au service de l’art… et se laisse inspirer de l’Art… quelle belle expérience. (When architecture places itself at the service of art ... and draws its inspiration from Art ... what a beautiful experience.) D&M&K G (26.07.2003)

From the guest book ...2004

An exceptionally beautiful ensemble of art and architecture. Here Luc Peire's work is lifted high in a dignified and very successful way ... a faithful reflection of his strong inclination towards verticalism.Gaston Bertrand's work is a rich addition. JP G (04.07.2004)

Cela reste un plaisir intense de revoir cet endroit après l’inauguration en 2003. (It remains an intense pleasure to see this place again after the inauguration in 2003). L’accrochage parfait des œuvres de Luc Peire où on ressent si bien l’être humain en tant critère de forme et d’espace. (The perfect hanging of Luc Peire's works where one senses so well the human being as the criterion of form and space.) V&B C (07.2004)

Wir sind begeistert von der gelungenen Verbindung zwischen Luc Peire’s Kunst und der Architektur des neuen Ausstellungsgebäudes. Der Geist der Kunst lebt in der Form weiter. (We are delighted at the successful link between Luc Peire's art and the architecture of the new exhibition building. The spirit of art lives on in the shape.) P&U R  (20.07.2004)

Beautiful works, in a superb architecture.The building has the same balance as the work. Materials are carefully thought out. Beautiful. M-D (23.07.04)

Merci pour cette visite très originale. Charlotte avec son opa (Thank you for this highly original visit. Charlotte with her grandad) (08.2004)

Superbe confrontation de deux grands artistes belges (Superb confrontation de two great Belgian artists) GL C(08.2004)

In Knokke, this banal town where only the sea, sky and the Zwarte Huis art gallery were worth the effort, this gem is now a relief for eye, ear, mind and feeling. Thank you for this rare poetic experience!... (09.10.2004)
