Together with Lateral Thinking Factory and City Tools, OUI have worked on an urban feasibility study for the largest single urban area of ​​industry in the Region of Brussels. A vast mono-functional economic zone, the studied site operates on the margins of urban dynamics, forming a caesura between Forest and Anderlecht. It is also a valuable reservoir of jobs and activities that are sometimes under-exploited. Based on an analysis of the existing situation and an approach that is both economic and urban, the objective of this mission was to provide a reference document defining a coherent vision. This vision was defined by architectural, economic and landscape guidelines and management options relating to the perimeter in the medium and long term, while ensuring that it is properly integrated into its immediate environment.

In this region that is growing rapidly but stuck in a confined area, requalification of this industrial zone in an urban area presents a real challenge for public authorities.
