Labo XX

The ambition to densify Antwerp’s 20th century belt demands new dwelling solutions and innovative typologies, as well as the reimagining of the relationships between built and open spaces to achieve attractive living environments. But that is not all: how can we overcome the difficulties presented by the characteristic fragmented territory and ownership patterns of this area? Besides thinking new spatial models, the housing production itself needs to be rethought as a chain of decisions and actions that generate the conditions allowing for smart solutions to emerge.
