Name winning plan: EB 005 Circumscribing the Sheperd's Garden
Quotation from the jury report Europan 08
Through the intelligent arrangement of the ribbon, "Circumscribing the Sheperd's Garden" succeeds in its objective of merging density with a generous, open space. The differentiation along the outer edges also contributes to the force of this modest and non-dogmatic plan.
Status: Not Implemented
In Tilburg the initial preconditions for the Europan assignment have in the meantime changed. The fire station will remain on the site for the foreseeable future. A large part of the site, however, has been vacated and discussions have taken place with the municipality of Tilburg and developing parties to realise a modified plan.
