A 3D physical model to debate the future of the site of the Anderlecht abattoirs

In order to make the space, the functions and the current and future activities of the site clearer, Forum Abattoir has had a model built based on an HD photograph provided by the BRIC cartography service. The buildings have been printed in 3D and are detachable. This model, presented by mission leader Ms Cataline Sénéchal, is therefore mobile and is used in workshops and during walks intended for a wide-ranging public: local people, site workers, students and adults following training courses.
Forum Abattoir is a partnership between the independent association Inter-environnement Bruxelles which aims to improve the quality of life in Brussels, the Centre de rénovation urbaine (urban renovation centre) and the limited company Abattoir SA/NV, created in order to lead a public debate on the future of the site of the Anderlecht abattoirs, which is currently constantly changing.

Namur 3D, the continuation… and no doubt not the conclusion

The Urban Planning Office is carrying on with its mission at the service of the people of Namur who would like a better understanding of the territorial issues, projects and urban development initiatives in favour of more sustainable urban co-construction.
