Workshop

Within the framework of the transformation of the Pieremans playground, Alive Architecture in collaboration with BRAVVO organized four workshops throughout June 2021 to test the ideas observed during the workshops in April. Those were to reinforce the use of the space by children and to make the area more safe. In case of success the ideas are going to be realized in a permanent way in 2022.

On Wednesday 02.06., 09.02., 16.02. and 23.06.2021 the team together with the participants, mainly the children that inhabit the surrounding social housing blocs, painted a play-space around the actual playground. Additionally they started to paint on the surrounding walls to make the space more user-friendly. Finally they co-constructed a fence in order to avoid children to run onto the street.

On 18.08.2021 together with a local artist Chloé Saelens the team will enlarge the painting on the wall. Through their presence during that day they will also test the fence and observe reactions of users of the space. The observations are going to lead to a realization of permanent interventions that will be developed through a participative process in spring 2022 and realized in September 2022.
