Belgian Urban Plan

A team led by Fletcher Priest is among a stellar shortlist of international architects chosen to tender a new urban plan to restructure Brussels’ European Quarter.

Brussels European Quarter

The Brussels-Capital Ministry selected five teams from the initial 35 applicants on the recommendations of an advisory committee.

The shortlisted candidates:

– Christian de Portzamparc (F) in collaboration with Jacques Wirtz (B), Coteba Belgium (B) and OVE ARUP (UK)

– Fletcher Priest Architects (UK) in collaboration with WIT Architekten (B), ARUP (UK) et Davis Langdon (UK)

– Xaveer de Geyter Architecten (B) in collaboration with Michel Desvigne Paysagiste (F), Laurent Ney & Partners (B), TRITEL Mobilité (B) and Resource Analysis (B)

– OMA (NL) in collaboration with NFArchitects (B), Agence TER (F), OVE ARUP (UK), DEGW (UK) and SETEC Partenaire Développement (F)

– JDS Architects (DK and B) in collaboration avec Studio Associato Secchi-Vigano (I), 3E (B), Laurent Ney & Partners (B) and TRITEL Mobilité (B)

The Fletcher Priest team will now draw up design proposals. The brief seeks a strategy to double the density of a 13-hectare site at the heart of the European District of Brussels, consolidating facilities for the Commission, introducing residential development and transforming a harsh highway that forms one of the key axes leading to the centre of the city. The final selection is expected to be made at the end of the year.
