The project 'Common Landscape | Amenities | Space' is part of the exhibition: Linkeroever, Across the River. 


International ideas competition

In 2016, Antwerp City Architect Christian Rapp launched an international ideas competition, with an explicit ambition to address the Linkeroever as an object of design research and to start the debate on the importance of this part of the city for the whole of Antwerp. The competition looked for 'Leitbilder' – images that offer a vision on what the future of the city might be.

Exhibition and Book: 'Linkeroever, Across the River'

In the exhibition, the selected projects show a wide variations of opportunities for this area to further develop. The book, 'Linkeroever, Across the River' intends to extend beyond merely collecting the results of the competition. Instead, it takes this initiative as the starting point for readdressing larger questions about the state of urban development and design today. If the Linkeroever is a city about to happen, this book and the competition wish to mark the start of this journey.


For the project Common Landscape | Amenities | Space, David Dooghe worked together with Defacto, architecture and Urban Design. The exhibition is taking place at the Flanders Architecture Institute
