Jointly organised by the Faculty of Architecture of the KU Leuven, the Faculty of architecture of the Politecnico di Bari and the Faculty of Architecture of the RWTH Aachen, the International Summer School ‘Over de Ring’ focuses on one of the most prominent infrastructural mobility projects ever built in Belgium – the motorway Ring of the city of Antwerp.
This Summer School builds upon the recent project for the covering of this large infrastructure launched by the city of Antwerp and the Flemish administration which would result in the construction of a large linear park around the city and the provision of new large areas for urban development.
The Summer School will depart from where the teams involved in the study have arrived, more specifically testing the capacity of the Ring to provide for alternative forms of housing, to offer answers to the ever-recurrent questions about densification and affordability of living units, to rethink the relationship between dwellings and urban voids and to allow for new spatial/typological configurations which are able to answer to the current ways of living and working.
The aim of the Summer School is to tackle a real and concrete condition in the attempt to bring the debate further and to offer to architectural students from each of the participating universities the opportunity to engage on a real case study at the very centre of the national planning and architectural debate.
