The Horizon Atelier
28. Jan 8 pm
In the Horizon-Atelier, Filter Café Filtré Atelier and Architecture Workroom Brussels draw a long-term perspective "beyond zero" for road safety in Brussels.

The Horizon Atelier is the culmination of a series of events on road safety in Brussels, organised by Heroes for Zero, BRAL and Filter Café Filtré Atelier, in collaboration with Architecture Workroom Brussels. The series of events runs in parallel with Brussels Mobility workshops in preparation for the drafting of the Brussels Government's new Road Safety Action Plan 2021-2030. 


The aim of the Other Atelier is to take the debate on road safety out of the 'formal' context of the planning process and bring it to where it matters: the street. 

 

2040 is the first point on the horizon. Which city do we want to live in at that time? What does that city look like and how does it function? It is a city where Vision Zero has been achieved, of course. But it is also a city where everyone, both children and the elderly, can move around safely and actively. It is a city where sustainable mobility is the norm. It is a city with a high quality of life and living where hustle and bustle, noise, unhealthy air, traffic insecurity, lack of greenery or meeting space are a thing of the past. In other words, it is a relaxing place for everyone to live and move around.  

 

Through backcasting, priorities can be derived for 2035, 2030 and 2025. These images have the power to convince what will become possible if certain measures are taken for the Brussels-Capital Region, which provides road safety from a "Beyond Zero" perspective, which also provides resilience to climate change, social cohesion, and so on.

Sports in the city: Call to action - design walk
28. Nov 10 am
Sport in the City: Call to action - design walk

On Saturday 28 November between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Architecture Workroom Brussels and Filter Café Filtré Atelier are organising a walking workshop on "Sport in the City" with the support of Brussels Mobility.

 

Outdoor sports are more necessary than ever in the current health crisis, but traffic insecurity, inappropriate surfaces, air pollution or fragmented and poor sports infrastructure make sports in the city centre not easy.

 

During the walking workshop "Sport in the City" we will therefore look for solutions to do sport and exercise in the city. Starting from a predetermined walking route of 5 km in the Vijfhoek, we will look for ways to plug playgrounds or yoga fields, a fit-o-meter, a skate street, basketball courts or other sports infrastructure for young and old into the route. We are also looking at how the course can generate spatial qualities for the city.

 

While walking and brainstorming, we come up with design proposals. The results will then be processed and announced in the spring during a running competition for centre schools in Brussels (if corona permits).

 

The walk takes place in the open air and is completely corona-proof. Together we walk in small groups and respect the necessary distance by means of an audio guide system. Please bring a mouth mask, smartphone and headphones. If you do not have them yourself, we can provide them. Please report this at your registration.

10:00, start:

Book launch Fundamentals of urban design
17. Nov 8 pm
De metaforische begrippen ‘Eiland & Archipel’ © Heinrich Altenmueller

After years of experience in education, research, design practice and policy advice, Professor Marcel Smets, founder of urban design and second Flemish Government Architect, has compiled his insights into urban design in a personal booklet. He reduces a complex subject matter to a series of core insights, and makes them comprehensible to a wide audience.

Smets' search for the Fundaments van het Stadsontwerp (Foundations of Urban Design), a very appropriate title, did not become a lengthy textbook, but an interesting and accessible essay. Twenty short chapters dissect central concepts from the practice of urbanisation and urbanism, using complementary pairs of concepts and characteristic examples.

In a full evening programme, the Flemish Architecture Institute fits this new and original contribution into the broader tradition of urban planning manuals. At the beginning of the evening Marcel Smets will explain the structure of the book. Afterwards, in a panel discussion with critical readers, we will explore the effective usability of the book for contemporary practice.
Speakers:
- Stefan Devoldere (UHasselt)
- Kristiaan Borret (Brussels master builder, University of Ghent)
- Els Vervloesem (Architecture Workroom Brussels)
- Michiel Dehaene (Ghent University)
This panel discussion in deSingel alternates with remote responses. In short video messages, Els Verbakel (Derman Verbakel Architecture, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Desing Jerusalem), Aglaée Degros (Artgineering, TU Graz), Tom Avermaete (ETH Zurich), and Maarten Van Acker (University of Antwerp) look for the foundations of urban design in their own local context.

Archiweek: guided tours in AWB's workspace.
10. Oct 1 am
Workspace Actiris, 2019. Photo: Lies Engelen.

Architecture Workroom is opening its doors as part of Archiweek.

 

This temporary set-up of offices on a standard office building slab, posits a considerable degree of flexibility from the users. The project questions the strictness of classic offices by subverting typical partition walls and other standardized elements. Individual workspaces are surrounded by a large common workspace to be used and appropriated by citizens, entrepreneurs, governments, researchers and other users. The temporary project took an economically feasible approach: as little material as possible was wasted, and existing dividing walls were retained or relocated. The design process took only 2.5 months between the first meeting and the inauguration of the project, resulting in an intensive collaboration between the architect and client. Both stayed in the building throughout the entire process, leading to the design vision and program being a real collective effort and learning experience for all participants.

 

The visits on 10.10.2020 at 16:00 and on 11.10.2020 at 11:00 will be guided by the architect Laura Muyldermans (LDSRa).

Forum Landscape Parks
7. Oct 1 am

How can we support and further develop areas in Flanders with a distinct landscape quality and regional identity in an integral manner? Can we develop a vision and approach that harmoniously combines landscape, recreation, nature, agriculture, housing, industry and tourism? Many local authorities and other initiators want to work creatively on this and ask themselves questions about it. The Flemish Government would like to hear how it can help with this through the 'landscape parks' label. As a representative of an area coalition, local government, regional landscape or other initiator, you are most welcome at the Forum Landscape Parks on 7 October.

Webinars OVK - Learning environment in practice
28. May 1 am
Four housing typologies for the energy district in Eeklo, image: plusoffice, enprove

Covenants of Mayors have been signed in many municipalities in East Flanders in recent years, but it is often not clear how the ambitious objectives can now be put into practice. That is why the IABR-Atelier OVK organised a series of webinars based on a twofold question: how can we build the future of the region through concrete projects, and vice versa, how can major social goals be a lever for innovative developments in the field?

These webinars dealt with various locations and challenges. Such as the reconstruction of roads, the redevelopment of station, market square and school environments, the redevelopment of classic allotment areas and the new interpretation of residential expansion areas. These are the types of locations and tasks that occur throughout the region and offer a handle to get started.

Possible answers to this question were illustrated and discussed during three thematic webinars, which touch on the challenges that were researched and developed in the three demonstration projects.

 

The first webinar on 14 May focused on open space in the OVK region. Many municipalities cherish it, but at the same time struggle with development pressure. How can we secure this precious open space, but still stimulate further spatial developments?

The second webinar on 28 May focused on shared mobility in the OVK region. Many initiatives have already been set in motion, but structural support is still lacking in many places. Building on the many small initiatives, how can a system change be brought about and what new types of space should be developed for this purpose?

The third and final webinar on 11 June looked at the energy district in the OVK region. How can we use the energy transition as a lever for spatial and social added value?

Unsealing forum. '1 year Flanders breaks out'
5. Mar 1 am

On 5 March 2020, the first series of 22 'Proeftuinen Ontharding’ (Pilot Project Unsealing) and all the experts involved, together with the Environment Department, looked back one year on a joint realisation and knowledge project. With every Pilot Project Unsealing a first step is taken and lessons can be learned with the aim that Flanders no longer belongs to one of the most hardened areas of Europe. To put highlight this moment and to take a look ahead, there was a Unsealing Forum. 

 

The programme summary: 

 

Morning

The morning looked back on the learning process of the 1st generation of pilot projects unsealing and their supporters.

A number of exemplary unsealing projects were presented by their leaders and several participants (projects, design supervisors, experts, ...) from the trajectory discussed the trajectory, the projects and the process. 

 

Afternoon

The afternoon focused on the exchange of knowledge between the 1st generation and 2nd generation pilot projects through a parallel work session and adds knowledge and expertise from external parties. 

It aims to broaden the learning effects and to work together on the further development of a softening culture in Flanders.

Open Studio series Take Care! – Atelier 4: Care for the neighborhood
27. Feb 1 pm
Stijn De Vleeschouwer (Team Vlaams Bouwmeester) about a possible second series of Pilot Projects Care focused on caring neighbourhoods, Brussels, Sien Verstraeten.

Together with representatives of various policy areas and knowledge institutions, architects, midfield, citizens and market initiatives, we will spend five afternoons discussing policy and professional approaches to better integrate care and shape it in society.  

 

During the fourth workshop, we will look more closely at the question of how the socialisation of care relates to views on the neighbourhood. What can a caring design and organisation of those neighbourhood(s), in which care is close by and accessible, contribute to our well-being?

 

In the first place, this concerns the integration of formal neighbourhood facilities, which can take the form of specific places as well as social networks. In addition, we also want to draw attention to all kinds of informal care, (temporary) help or support. How can we strengthen the social fabric in neighbourhoods? What is needed for people to remain part of society? How does this relate to places of meeting, accessibility and mobility, the proximity of basic facilities such as a bakery, a grocery shop, child care, or a hairdresser? 

 

The Take Care! atelier series is an initiative of Architecture Workroom Brussels, the City Academy (UGent/Social Work and Social Pedagogy, Architecture and Urbanism), the Department of Welfare, Public Health, Family/VIPA, KULeuven/LUCAS and the Flemish Government Architect Team.

Open Studio series Take Care! – Atelier 3: Between home and institution
30. Jan 1 pm

Together with representatives of various policy areas and knowledge institutions, architects, midfield, citizens and market initiatives, we will spend five afternoons discussing policy and professional approaches to better integrate care and shape it in society. 


During the third workshop, we will look more closely at the question of how the socialisation of care relates to the changing demands of citizens in the course of their lives. In the workshop we discuss the dominant view in the socialisation of care that people can and should continue to live independently at home for as long as possible with the support of their natural network. This results in necessary transitions between self-reliant living at home and being transferred to residential care when there is really no other option, creating a spread between self-reliant and care-dependent citizens who are seen as a residual group. The studio focuses on the question of how the design of the living environment can continue to respond to the quality of life and make citizens feel at home with changing demands for care.


The Take Care atelier series is an initiative of Architecture Workroom Brussels, De Stadsacademie (UGent/Sociaal Werk en Sociale Pedagogiek, Architectuur en Stedenbouw), Departement Welzijn, Volksgezondheid, Gezin/VIPA, KULeuven/LUCAS and Team Vlaams Bouwmeester.

Imagining 10 keys to building city-management of the future

The results will be presented to all partners involved as a conclusion of the exploration process in collaboration with the Urban Management Front Group within the framework of the Delta Atelier. In recent months, AWB, H + N + S, Endeavour and Jelte Boeijenga have investigated how city management and design can be better coordinated with each other and with the major transitions that are coming our way. This provides incredible opportunities, both within the specific test districts that were studied and for the implementation of regional or even national policy! This workshop will provide the final input for the workbook and the poster that will be published after this process.

Work Shop 1: Green-blue network on community building in the Pentagone Sud
19. Dec 1 pm
Sketch of the green network in the Pentagone Sud. Materials to prepare for the first work sessions in December 2018.

The southern Pentagon of Brussels is bubbling with projects and initiatives that try to respond to the small and big challenges that manifest themselves daily. Both for committed citizens and for policy, the Southern Pentagon has so far proved to be a breeding ground for collective protests, for unsolicited design research, for multiple neighbourhood contracts and urban renewal contracts and for prioritizing investments.

To cultivate this capacity, a co-production process is underway in which the residents of their neighbourhood collaborate with governments, designers and experts to formulate the projects for the future and implement them in new coalitions.

The urban renewal project of the Flemish Community Commission focuses on shaping a productive and locally anchored green-blue network in the southern Pentagon. Through a series of workshops with residents and local organizations, designers, governments and experts, roofs, facades, fencing and playgrounds are smartly provided with productive greenery (vegetables, fruit, herbs), nest boxes and other installations that enhance biodiversity and the short food chain. promote in the city. New green spaces are created through this urban acupuncture that involve local residents and organizations in the design, implementation and management. Productive green installations thus become a lever for working towards a healthier environment, better water management, the tempering of the heat island effect and the social cohesion in (vulnerable) neighbourhoods.

In collaboration with the Flemish Community Commission, BSI-BCO, Atelier Groot Eiland, BRAL and Architecture Workroom Brussels.

Invisible care as a socio-spatial assignment.

Together with representatives of various policy areas and knowledge institutions, architects, midfield, citizens and market initiatives, we will spend five afternoons discussing policy and professional approaches to better integrate care and shape it in society.  

The second atelier deals with the question of how the ambitions and implementations of invisible care behave being able to relate the socio-spatial mission to the financing of care, with an emphasis on the new evolution towards personal financing. We discuss the effect of the evolution of financing of care has to do with the design of living and living situations of care-dependent citizens. Can the (personal) financing make invisible care possible? We look for encouragement for innovative projects of invisible care that respond to the personal financing.

Invisible care as a socio-spatial assignment.

Together with representatives of various policy areas and knowledge institutions, architects, midfield, citizens and market initiatives, we will spend five afternoons discussing policy and professional approaches to better integrate care and shape it in society.  

During the first workshop the question we go into more detail is how the invisible ambitions and implementations of can act as a social spatial assignment and relate to the socialization of the care. We discuss possible pros and cons in the workshop and the disadvantages of socialization. We focus on the underlying concept of citizenship and how principles of solidarity can be interpreted in various ways. Is invisible care a lever of warm and cold solidarity (or informal and formal,professional care)? In that light we look for the seeds of innovative practices of invisible care.
