Masterplan for Begijnendijk, Belgium


Masterplan for Begijnendijk, Belgium


This proposal increases density, adds green spaces and connects the city via a series of monuments. The monuments serve as visual reference points that would pull pedestrians and bikers through the city from one plaza or park to the next. This masterplan emphasizes the historical identity of Begijnendijk and improves the city’s green civic infrastructure. The design achieves this by allowing increased density around a ‘common’: a large rectangular lawn in the middle of the town center.
