Public initiative 2018

  • Renovation of Bourse station

    Bourse station, located in the centre of Brussels, the Belgian and European capital, and close to a number of centres of interest such as the Grand Place, Manneken Pis, the AB and the Beursschouwburg, needed renovation to bring it in line with the new Brussels urban dynamic.
    The renovation project for Bourse pre-metro station transcended the notion of station, by pushing the new urban activities of an intermodal station to their limit: pre-metro (tram), bicycle parking, bicycle point and workshop and a presentation space for cultural diversity, called "Qartier".
    This renovation was based on a trailblazing architectural programme that was translated into original spatial research and a great sense of detail in both the materials used and the equipment fitted, offering an authentic walk from the city centre for Brussels residents and visitors alike.

  • SuperVliegSuperMouche - Park Festival Poétik

    SuperVliegSuperMouche has evolved into the ultimate Brussels arts festival for families, and it's entirely bilingual and free. In 2018, the 7th edition of the festival lasted for an entire weekend. More than 25,000 visitors headed down to the Park de Forest to enjoy a beautifully sunny and astonishing weekend in green surroundings with 40 poetic, surprising and mischievous shows, and interactive workshops. The real benefit of SuperVliegSuperMouche is the widely supported and extremely diverse partnership embraced by the festival along with over 200 colourful volunteers. The dynamic spirit of the partners, visitors, volunteers and artists grows every year, resulting in this large artistic celebration centred on human warmth. The festival shows the power of synergy in a vibrant capital ... not a one-day wonder but the wondrous tip of the iceberg!

  • Bike Experience

    Created in 2010, Bike Experience is an essential part of the Brussels cycling scene. The team's goal is to assuage people's fears about travelling by bicycle; it meets on the first Wednesday of the month from March to November so that people can ride amongst the traffic on their bike and then enjoy an aperitif surrounded by experienced cyclists. It is coordinated by Pro Velo and Brussels Mobility and aims to provide real support before, during and after the event.
    Cycling is becoming increasingly popular and this monthly meeting organised by Bike Experience is the perfect opportunity for meet-ups, fun and challenges. Bike Experience is available to answer questions, demystify bikes and strengthen the cycling community, wanting to be seen as the solution for calm, relaxed cycling.
