FONTAINAS, Brussels – Belgium

The Fontainas project consists in the reconfiguration of a wasteland, left over after the demolition of Philips factory in the 1980’s. With 10.000 m2 of greenery, it is the only large-scale park in the disadvantaged urban center of Brussels. In order to create an extended park, the project proposes to reverse the logic of the city block, to ensure urban continuity, not through closed façade but through an open space dotted with volumes standing out as urban landmark. The project has seek to free up a maximum of space for the park. The careful drawing of the topography and design of a series of shallow basins in the park, ensure the collection of rain water. It’s a « nearly zero rainwater discharge » project.
