2007, Antwerp, Belgium

With its curved walls, the square offers a floating space and an interesting set of views. West 8 has sought to treat them all with equal importance. The square thereby called for a distinct identity to facilitate all sorts of activities held in this quarter of town. The existing vast empty parking space was therefore transformed into a focal point surrounded by two streets with a predominant pedestrian character.
