KCAP's vision for 'Brussels 2040' exhibited in Brussels

KCAP's vision for 'Brussels 2040' will be exhibited from March 16th to April 15th 2012 in the exhibition ‘Brussels 2040. Three visions for a metropolis.’ KCAP Architects&Planners, together with ARUP, Systematica SpA, ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles], forms one of the three international teams commissioned by the Brussels-Capital Region to develop a vision for the future of Brussels.

What will Brussels be like in 2040 if its demographic growth continues? How will people get around the city if the motor car is no longer a sustainable means of transport? How can we reduce the social divide and avoid a dual city? How can we offer everyone an opportunity to live and work in the city with dignity? How can we coordinate the development of Brussels with its hinterland?

Faced with all these questions, the Brussels-Capital Region turned to three teams of international experts, made up of architects, town planners, and landscape architects, among others. The ‘Brussels 2040: Three Visions for a Metropolis’ exhibition shows the approaches taken by these three teams:

-    51N4E, l’AUC, Bureau Bas Smets (with Mint, Transolar, Chôros, Urban Solutions)
-    Studio 012 Bernardo Secchi Paola Viganò, (with CREAT, Egis Mobilité, Technische Universität München – Dept. of Building Climatology & Building Services, IDEA Consult, Karbon’)

-    KCAP Architects&Planners (with ARUP, Systematica SpA, ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles])
