Park/Plaza for Kessel-Lo, Belgium


Park/Plaza for Kessel-Lo, Belgium


The ORG team responded to the Kessel-Lo competition brief with a solution that creates a floating plaza and grants residents and visitors garden spaces. This space serves as a buffer zone between the infrastructural rail tracks and the residential zone. The layered automobile parkway, park and public plaza establishes a hierarchy of spaces to separate and connect infrastructure and public space.
