Museum of Father Damian

Design & Build - the Picpus Fathers and the Museum of Father Damien - Leuven and Tremolo

Father Damien was canonised in 2009, and the occasion was marked with many initiatives. Sien created a Father Damien visitor centre in St Anthony’s Chapel in Leuven in keeping with the religious function of the chapel. The exhibition was designed in the form of a Via Damianus, with 7 stations, depicting highlights from the life of Father Damien, the priest with a social conscience. Sien is currently working on the design of a permanent exhibition on Father Damien - and his struggle against exclusion - in the house where he was born, as Jozef De Veuster, in Tremolo.
