B-city guides complex urban projects and supervises their creation. Find out all about our platform here.
We are beyond proud to tell you about the project on which we’ve been working very hard: B-city.
With B-city, we are adding a third platform to our existing divisions B-architecten and B-bis. Its aim is to guide complex urban projects and supervise their creation. Projects with a scale that have the ambition to create a new city district are at the centre of B-city’s mission.
These projects are distinguished by:
- A long term (10 years or more)
- Different and diverse actors
- Major social and business interests
- The need for an intensive participation and communication process
Based on the knowledge that every urban renewal is subject to a unique urban process and dynamic, B-city operates with an equally unique group of team partners: urban planners, architects, moderators, academics, mobility experts, landscape designers, lawyers, ...
B-city thinks process-oriented. An important role in our activities lies in expertise that frames complex urban development projects within a broader social context and in a common basis that reconciles the various private and public interests.
B-city works with cross-domain research. Each team member is open to particular spatial solutions, new (residential) typologies and ambiguous public (green) space. Through a substantiated knowledge of the place’s history, the typical buildings that are already there and current trends in urban renewal, we connect the large scale with the small one. With B-city, we believe that design expertise should not be limited to one's own field. That’s why we critically question and challenge each other within a modus operandi of regular workshops with the aim of eventually complementing each other.
