Town Center and Library Design, City of Opglabbeek, Belgium


The town center and library design for the city of Opglabbeek by ORG addresses the functional needs of the library, while also proposing a larger urban public space concept. Rather than concentrating all of the new program in a new big building, we propose to house it in pavilions, which themselves structure two new plaza’s. These realize a missing link of public space and establish a continuous chain of differing public open spaces, existing and new.
