New Ghent: park, street, square

New Ghent is a social housing enclave behind the Zwijnaardsesteenweg. Five of the seven high-rise strips will be replaced by open building blocks, with low-rise buildings along the street and towers in the park. The park, set up around a wide path, will be enlarged and given access plazas. The plan provides a sustainable future outlook for the neighbourhood and a spatial framework for replacement construction, improvement of facilities and connections, and addressing public space.

Elly Van Eeghem founded CAMPUS in 2017: a collective design studio for public space in the southern edge of Ghent. This studio builds the imagination and experience of the square, the street, the park, the parking,… together with people from the neighbourhood as co-makers: inventors, designers, builders or co-creators. They set to work with a focus on all open or hidden green spaces in and around the neighbourhood, looking for places for people.
