Entwurf - Antwerpen, Het Eilandje: Mexicoeiland/Kempeneiland
City as a Maze
Julian Brinkman, Niko Henke, Februar 2015


Overview
This design is about a conversion of an industrial area in the southern port area of Antwerp. The area is located near the city centre and it is an attractive location due to its location on the waterfront.
The design depicts an urban structure which is based on southern European urban areas. Because of the labyrinthine structure new perspectives and views are always granted. Thus arises a exciting and varied streetscape.
A survey in the north gives the entire city a new element. Here a park is located that connects the district with the surrounding neighborhoods. A central square is the center of the area with a link to a lively promenade. It forms the opposite pole to the quiet walk route to the north.
