OUTPOST PERIFERIA: SAFARI–DISCOVERING THE EAST FRINGE OF BRUSSELS

+ Attending
+ RSVP!

On Monday evening 24/08, this safari class explores a part of the East periphery of Brussels. 

First, we visit the Reyers district, the area between Chaussée de Louvain, Reyers and the E40 which is considered to be one of the "strategic zones for urban development’ of the Brussels Region. In 2010, a master plan was drawn up, aiming to redevelop the area from a patchwork of large real estate projects, office buildings and traffic infrastructure into a "creative and vibrant mixed city district" with housing, shops, services and leisure provision. Since then the projects mediapark.brussels and Parkway / E40 were launched. 

Our next stop is a site at Colonel Bourg where a mixed use residential project - Skyline Europe - is being developed by Bogdan & Van Broeck architects. 

From there, we cycle through the multi-storey apartment towers and office blocks of the Gulledelle and Roodebeek area in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, a 'to be densified pole of the second crown' in the Brussels Region.

We then cross the regional border into Flanders, to trade in the Brussels towers and offices for the allotments and fields of Kraainem. For some years now, the VLM Flemish Land Agency has been working in this part of the periphery to develop an open space network to strengthen the green character of the Woluwe Valley.

We finish our exploration of all these different storeylines and urban scales at the Vuilbeek, a small affluent of the Woluwe that has been adapted into an ecological corridor and water storage landscape.

Participants are invited to register their interest no later than Saturday 22 August. Please send an email to info@psfa-bxl.org (please mention ‘psfa-bxl outpost PeriFeria Safari East’ in the subject line)
