Call for design teams— Atelier Brussels The Productive Metropolis

In the framework of the IABR Atelier Brussels Productive Metropolis, Plusoffice / Wrkshp Collectif and the team composed of CENTRAL / Maxime Delvaux / Eva Le Roi have been selected following an open call that was launched in conjunction with the Brussels authorities to conduct design research into the appropriate typologies for a high-quality interweaving of habitation and workplaces in the city. 47 design teams from over eight countries have expressed their interest. Out of 5 preselected candidates these 2 design teams were appointed to explore and portray the challenges and the future of the productive districts on the basis of two test areas each.

The 5 design teams that were invited to develop their vision on the brief and to submit a tender were:

The assignment consists of carrying out research by design for the Brussels Capital Region. The project zooms in on 4 specific cases, each in close collaboration with those actors in the Brussels authorities that are involved. The two selected teams will each focus on two linked sites. In these areas, an examination will be made of the potency and essential spatial conditions that are necessary to be able to play a vital part in the development of the productive districts in the metropolitan area of Brussels, with habitation and work positively interwoven. Concrete spatial proposals are expected that can be employed for the actual practice of development. These projects will derive their substance from ‘urban meetings’ at which knowledge will also be exchanged with the Flemish research projects and with international experts. The intermediate and final results will form part of exhibitions and programmes for the public at IABR Rotterdam and BOZAR in Brussels.

The cases that form the subject of the research by design are situated in the following districts (possibly subject to change): Masui (Schaarbeek, Brussels), Birmingham (Anderlecht), Biestebroek (Anderlecht) and Delta (Oudergem, Elsene, Watermaal Bosvoorde).
