The design team OMGEVING – UAUcollectiv has won the Open Call Van Marcke site: the complete study and design assignment for the masterplan and possible implementation projects for the Weggevoerdenlaan site in Kortrijk. The design proposal is not a traditional masterplan, but an experimental, generation-proof development strategy. The qualities present, the character of the existing structures and the specific topography create the perfect conditions to start from the existing situation and to apply sustainable principles of circularity, reuse and identity.
In the future, the Van Marcke site will become a lively city district in which collectivity is key.
