Name winning plan: MR 007 Post Industrialisation
Quotation from the jury report Europan 08
One of the plan's great strengths lies in its strategy: the preservation of the existing plot layout can be conceived as an argument to begin building at once. This results in housing blocks in varying dimensions sharing a common design.
Status: Not Implemented
In the prize-winning plan blocks varying in dimension and scale could be developed at discretion within the existing site sub-division. This created a clear separation between the public and collective domain. Nieuw Overstad is working on a master plan for the transformation of Overstad. The municipality still intends giving ATELIERBRUUT a commission in due course for a partial elaboration.
