Art & Build won the Business Park Development competition on the Molenbeek Valley site near Brussels. A holistic approach, supported by sensitive sustainable development themes, won over the jury.
The creation of an industrial park for CityDevBrussels on the Molenbeek Valley site in Ganshoren (Brussels Capital Region) is a real challenge from an urban planner’s and landscape designer’s point of view. Requiring the cohabitation of commercial activities and a natural and protected landscape, Art&Build took a sensitive and holistic approach, demonstrating a wider outlook on the sustainable future of the surrounding area. Landscape features are focussed on ‘eco-responsability’, incorporating site management strategies that take on board local activities, the proximity of the surrounding environment, its ecological potential and an integrated rain water management scheme.
