We asked Matthijs Van Mierlo, who's been shooting really cool pics of Antwerp's architecture for years now, to make a series on his favorite Antwerp hoods. He already dropped by Zurenborg and De Luchtbal. This week, he's headed to Borgerhout.

Matthijs: "Borgerhout does not have the grand architecture of Zurenborg, but it makes up for that with its diversity: the houses and buildings in Borgerhout have as many different faces as the people that live there.

Capturing that diversity was a challenge, because most streets in Borgerhout are lined by cars that block the faces of the houses. So this series is just a small sample of the many beautiful, charming and strange buildings that the streets of Borgerhout have to offer."

Check out the full series on our Facebook page.
