Vlaanderen als Ontwerp— Atelier

The exhibition project The Ambition of the Territory, conceived for the Belgian Pavilion at the 13th International Architecture Biennial in Venice, has taken the form of a workshop in deSingel. During the coming months, experts, policy makers, designers and other citizens will engage in intensive discussions, debates and design activities. deSingel will become a workshop for design thinking in which the ambition of the Flanders territory will take concrete shape.

The Ambition of the Territory calls for a turnaround in thinking about the future of Flanders. We need a need policy. While the existing sectoral policy seeks to divorce the different uses of space from each other, The Ambition of the Territory  investigates possible synergies and shared gains in the simultaneous use of the space. Through joint productions across the different users of the space, we can transform the ‘consumption landscape’ into a sustainable and thriving European region.

The exhibition at deSingel is the starting point for exploring the possible synergies in a workshop.In and around the central area of the pavilion, designers, societal players and experts from the most diverse backgrounds will share their knowledge, engaging in debate and design activities, for the duration of the exhibition. The aim of the workshop is to formulate a broad vision and a design agenda for the coming months and years.

On 8 January the participants will present the workshop results at the symposium 'Naar een gedeelde ontwerpagenda voor Vlaanderen'.
