Rigakaai Ghent    

Ghent University, 2009

With Louis Vercaemst

 

 

Design for a reception building at quay ‘Rigakaai’ in the port of Ghent. Louis and Jolien would call their design ‘daring’ as they imagined a building that would be constructed underneath the moving crane. Positioned along the axe of the crane trails, the oblong gallery makes a downward movement, connecting the quay with de waterfront.
