masterplan in Wachtebeke (Belgium)  
The centre of this small Belgian town is organised around two poles: 'Dorp', a pedestrian zone, and ‘Persynplein’, a public square that is used mainly for parking but also occasionally accommodates a market or other large events. The two poles are connected by a clear pedestrian axis. The concept of 'ordered parking' – which consists of a series of rotating urban elements that can either open up or close off sections of the square to cars – has been introduced, allowing a flexible and organised use of the large space.
