Future-proofing an urban campus by the water!

The team of BRUT in collaboration with Delva, Mint and 3E has been chosen to develop a master plan for the redevelopment of the technology campus of Odisee and KU Leuven in Ghent. The strategic location in the middle of the city, along one of the main waterways and future ‘Climate-Axis’ and the ambitions of the clients offer a unique opportunity to create a forward-thinking project in terms of education, urban integration and climate change.

Cities by and for children!

We had a great time working with these 6th graders on the future of their town center. Such a different perspective and amazing how serious some of them took the questions and tasks we gave them.

Co-creating a climate-neutal neighborhood!

Great turnout last week for our first session with the neighbors of the future development in Leuven. Lots of fair concerns and many inspiring ideas to fuel the coming design sessions. See you in a few months!

Climate neutral neighborhood

 

The team with BRUT in collaboration with 3E, Mint and LAMA was selected to develop a masterplan and energy concept for a climate neutral neighborhood in Louvain. Sustainable buildings, ample green open space, smart mobility and a climate neutral energy system will be combined into an ambitious pilot project for the city. We are looking forward to a creative process with the City of Leuven, KU Leuven, Dijledal and the local community!

BRUT+LAND+Mint win competition

BRUT, in collaboration with LAND and Mint, is selected to redesign the center of Schepdaal, Dilbeek, with a proposal around four key ambitions. We want to make space for ‘residing’, ‘greening’ and ‘connecting’ and we want to do this in close collaboration with the city and its’ inhabitants!
