Within a few days, Streetscape Territories will organize a seminar and related workshop, to consolidate the discussion platform about streetscape territories, based on the discourse of depth configurations. During a workshop with students of the International Master of Science in Architecture, and by a series of parallel presentations and related discussions, the topics of permeability, accessibility, territorial boundaries and collective space will be questioned. To achieve this, a systematic review will be made of a series of complex urban projects at an international level.

The following activities are planned, during four days:

– an exhibition of ongoing research, presentation to students and outsiders, by the research group
– a few discussion sessions about ongoing research, understood as working sessions (review of projects in Brussels, Antwerp, Tokyo, New York, Barcelona…)
– a workshop with International Master of Architecture students (1st year, campus Brussels) about Streetscapes Territories: Central Station Brussels (and surroundings)

(Depth Configuration within the project of the Seijo Town Houses, SANAA)
