Activating Genk / 03.2016



Led project while at space & matter



A temporary intervention designed to begin a dialogue between residents of Sledderlo - near Genk, Belgium - and the municipality responsible for the expansion of the town.


The project was run on an extremely modest budget. The brief looked for a focal point as well as spaces in which meetings and workshops could take place. By arranging three shipping containers we were able to achieve a look out tower for residents to survey where their town would expand to and meet to discuss plans in the other two containers.
