French Dutch
Aerial View - Blue Water

This project covers an area within Antwerp, Flanders in Belgium that used to be heavily used as part of the brick manufacturing industry with many former clay quaries now littering the landscape. Many of these pits are now derelict and have become overgrown and unusable.


Many of the areas have different owners so this project, which aims to bring the site back into use, sees the managers having to liaise with a number of different parties in order to see the project through.


The future of the sites depend of a range of aspects such as:

  • The planning of multifunctional use of the sites

  • The setting up of a global and integrated spatial policy framework

  • Finding a functional balance between future developments andthe heritage of the landscape as well as the current nature.
