PROJECT SUMMARY

Material Flows

Construction materials recycling and logistics hub

This construction materials village is an illustration of sustainable urban logistics as part of a larger ecosystem. By distributing construction materials to Brussels and collecting construction waste from it, the village functions as an important logistics and distribution hub between port and city.

The modular and hierarchical structure of the warehouses makes the architecture receptive to different programmatic demands of various site users.
