Project Summary

Mix-City in Belgium

Urban integration of an existing concrete mixing facility

Urban integration of an existing concrete mixing facility: The project offers an alternative to standard contemporary approaches, suggesting to keep the mixing facility on site rather than relocating it to the city’s edges, while adding a range of functions – both public spaces as well as privately funded workspaces – to densify the site.
