Buda Island lies between the arms of the river Leie, offering plenty for artistically-minded visitors to the city. This entertainment-rich district of Kortrijk includes such distractions as the Buda Tower; a platform for artists of all sorts to do what they do best. The Budascoop cinema offers the chance to enjoy the best non-commercial films. BUBOX is a space for contemporary visual arts which resolutely opts for artists who wish to interact with the space and its surroundings in a unique and artistic way.Each year, a challenging programme is introduced with a handful of projects. Buda Beach invites young and old to relax in the beautiful setting of the river Leie. In the summer, this place turns into a beach with a sunbathing area. The Buda Factory is an impressive venue where designers, entrepreneurs, artists, students and active citizens work side-by-side. The architectural firm of the Flemish Government Architect Peter Swinnen took charge of the old building. A pentagonal section was added along the streetside to make the building's façade more visible. The building's 3,000 m² provides space for exhibitions, workshops and studios. There is a prototype lab with 3D printers, laser cutters and lots of other machines for creative people.
