Publication Het Vliegertje and Pension van Schoonhoven in Flanders Architectural Review N°14. When Attitudes Take Form. Fifty projects display the multifaceted nature of the resulting architecture. Twelve essays examine a current topic.
Public interest in architecture and spatial issues has never been so high. The Flanders Architectural Review No.14 presents striking architecture from Flanders and Brussels. It assembles a broad range of recently completed architectural projects and situates them in the evolution of the socio-cultural domain in which they arose.
BULK architects, OVERZICHT and Woonpunt Schelde-Rupel have been selected for the Regional project call "sustainable materials and energy use"! Social housing companies can play a pioneering role in making residential areas more sustainable, because they are often the only ones with a patrimony of some scale. During the feasibility study, we outline a path to a climate-proof sustainable Schrijverswijk in Zwijndrecht - with heat network, geothermal energy and other renewable energy sources. We involve experts, look for stakeholders and investigate thresholds, choices and solutions. The financial support of the FDME for this study allows us to conduct thorough research that falls outside the usual design budgets. The knowledge gained will be shared with other social housing companies to maximize the impact.
