Landscape-Driven Urban Projects

A voyage through a series of public projects in Romania and Belgium, aiming to improve urban dwelling not (only) in terms of housing units, but (also) of access to public amenities and nature. These projects are all anchored in the geography of their place, starting with a precise reading and a critical interrogation of their context, at the various scales of intervention. They aim to challenge the too-often valid correlation between urban densification and ecosystem degradation, by doing more of everything: more housing or amenities but also more nature. Potentials are revealed, but so are the limitations of working within a greater (hostile) policy paradigm.
