This competition design concerns the reconfiguration of the urban site at Sint-Andriesplaats in Antwerp. Today, the site is already a symbol of the social housing neighbourhood and a fixture in the cultural sector. With our proposal, we want to enlarge the lines of force present and rid the site of its spatial chaos. By filtering the heritage, grouping the users and playing off its central context, we wish to prepare the site for a flexible future in which users can alternate and the site can transcend its own boundaries. We introduce the typology of the hortus conclusus. This model generates a public garden, a semi-public gallery and buildings with the desired programme around it. We compact the edge with the two largest spaces. We enhance the appearance of the site by providing two representative front buildings at both entrances. The canopy forms the gallery under which temporary structures are placed that can be flexibly filled in and extended.
