TRANS architectuur | stedenbouw
How can we create space for manufacturing in an urban context where often all mechanisms seem to focus on housing development? There is a need for a bigger story about the productive city, with shared spaces, that goes beyond the real estate story. Although the need for housing is justified, we must guard against a monoculture. The manufacturing industry is an added value for a city. TRANS architectuur | stedenbouw is not new in the field. With experience in various urban manufacturing projects in Ghent, the office is now also investigating the sharing economy in Kortrijk. The lecture shows projects that perfectly illustrate the city’s manufacturing industry.
