ORG SQUARED is a collaboration between Alexander D’Hooghe, Marcel Smets, and a strong team of urbanists, dedicated to inception and implementation of urban projects.
Focus areas include the design and planning of mobility infrastructures and their surrounding urban development; innovation districts; and the upgrading of former industrial and logistic areas or depressed housing districts.
