East join Cass Cities for Brussels workshop

Dann Jessen taught at the recent summer school in Brussels arranged by Cass Cities and Ruimte Vlaandren.  The rich, mixed urban economy and fabric of Buda on the northern fringe of Brussels include open landscapes intersected by railways and roads, islands of industry, homes, gardens and meadows. Some in use and some ready to be improved and densified.

Local planning authorities, landowners and developers joined in with a discussion that opened up opportunities for making new connections, projects across site boundaries, re-appropriating existing buildings and yards, and building new industrial and commercial buildings in the city.
