Architecture Workroom

Atelier de Stad— Brussels

As a cultural think-and-do-tank, Architecture Workroom participates actively in the crossmedial project Atelier de Stad (Atelier The City / For this initiative, the public television channel Canvas launched a broad cooperation with several cultural and urban organisations and with other television and radio broadcasters. Five very different urban festivals in Ostend, Kortrijk, Ghent, Hasselt-Genk and Brussels, initiated by these organisations, form the core of the project. It is the team behind the renowned documentary series 'De Canvasconnectie’ which produces the documentaries on each of the urban festivals.

Week van de Stad / Studio de Stad

Between October 27th and October 30th, Canvas launches the ‘Week van de Stad’ (Week on The City). Every night, a documentary or film is broadcasted, followed by ‘Studio de Stad’ (Studio The City): a late-night conversation between guests on different urban challenges. On October 28th, Ruth Joos welcomes Geert Bourgeois (Minister-President of Flanders), Gaëtan Hannecart (CEO Matexi), Michelle Provoost (International New Town Institute, NL) and Joachim Declerck (AWB). After watching ‘Radiant City’, a documentary presenting a surprising portrait of the daily live in a North-American suburb, they explore how and where one million extra Flemish inhabitants will live in the future.
