There is a near universal appeal among Belgians to build their own house, which is reflected in the popular saying—“every Belgian is born with a brick in his stomach.” The result of this becomes obvious when you drive through any Flemish suburb. Every house is different from its neighbor. Worse still, every house is a hotchpotch of different architectural styles.

It’s like a “nightmarish architectural Legoland”, says Hannes Coudenys, who has been photographing these architectural shambles for the past several years and documenting them in his blog Ugly Belgian Houses.
