public square in Genk (Belgium)  
The theme of this competition was the transformation of a former industrial site into an attractive new cultural centre, called 'C-Mine'. As a way of attracting artistic creativity to C-Mine, the proposal 'Moving-Mine' seeks to recreate the dynamism of the industrial atmosphere. A series of platforms in a sunken square can be moved on tracks, either freely or by mechanical means. The numerous possible configurations inspire creativity and interaction, allowing the platforms to be used for concerts and exhibitions, fashion shows and flea markets, urban ‘furniture’ and games for children.
