‘The squares of Ghent are precious. They are places of gathering and they exude Ghent’s’ vibrant city life. The squares in the inner city are embraced and shaped by a unique historical and architectural framework.’
With this opening sentence from the assignment conditions, the city council of Ghent introduces her motivation for a well-advised square-scenography which sparked the interest of OMGEVING. This assignment is about organizing small and large events in tune with the public domain of the city. OMGEVING will work on the development of a manageable tool in the coming year to get hold of the spatial organization of events and the possibilities offered by Ghent’s squares and parks.
For this assignment, OMGEVING works with Patrick De Groote, Stijn Oosterlynck and Katrien Hebbelinck.
