Accessible Public Space

How can we design an accessible, inclusive and sustainable public space for Brussels? This is the topic of the second debate, which will gather the architectural offices 1010 architecture urbanism, PIOVENEFABI, Acte – 51N4E, Bureau Bas Smets, Grue, DEV-space and vvv architecture urbanisme / Bloc Paysage. The debate will be moderated by Gideon Boie, architect and founder of Bavo, a research collective focusing on art, architecture and urbanism. He is a lecturer and researcher at KU Leuven.

The projects of these seven Belgian offices selected for the Brussels Architecture Prize each demonstrate spatial, social and ecological ambitions. During this debate, the speakers will discuss the accessibility of today’s public spaces through the notions of inclusiveness, sustainable development and soft mobility, which allow everyone, regardless of gender or generation, to benefit from them and experience the city together.

The Brussels Architecture Prize is an initiative of the Brussels-Capital Region that is implemented by Urban in co-production with A+ Architecture in Belgium. A series of five conferences, produced in collaboration with CIVA, invites speakers to address a specific theme through their architectural practice. This conference is the second in a series of five conferences.
