Debate Building Mastery in Flanders

Auditorium Quetelet (Universiteit Gent), Gent

Once the bouwmeesterschap was created to display the architectural policy in Flanders form from a long-term response to the little concerted and often chaotic policy that existed in Flanders. An interview between Bob van Reeth and Leo Van Broec* on the impact of a vision. Filip Canfyn moderates.

Lecture LAND USE & DENSITY by Leo Van Broeck

Turbinezaal De Centrale, Gent

The challenge for our overcrowded and too small planet is a total realignment of our space. Specifically for Flanders, the diagnosis is doubly painful: more than 32% is built area, and this in the most fragmented way. Leo Van Broeck reflects on land use and density, and links it to their own work.
