Cultural and Economic Center, St. Truiden, Belgium


The Neven Lemaire company in St. Truiden, Belgium held a competition to create a symbolic civic center that promoted the fruit industry in the region. The proposal re-organizes an existing peripheral urban block into a public garden, a visitor center, retail and a residential neighborhood. An iconic orchard tower cantilevers over the nearby highway, welcoming visitors to the city. Intermodal parking, a new square, a park, as well as various retail programs organize this joint between city and periphery.
