Linkeroever. Sprong over de Schelde
In the wake of the ‘Linkeroever’ ideas competition, the Flanders Architecture Institute produced Linkeroever: Across the River The book provides a comprehensive overview of all competition entries and takes a closer look at the history and potential future of Linkeroever, the neighbourhoods on the left bank of the River Scheldt in Antwerp.
In 2016, Antwerp’s City Architect, Christian Rapp, launched an international ideas competition with the express ambition of turning Linkeroever into a subject of design research, and to encourage debate about the importance of the area for the city of Antwerp as a whole.
Linkeroever: Across the River serves a purpose beyond merely gathering the competition entries in one place. The book uses the initiative as a starting point for reopening the debate on broader issues surrounding the current state of affairs in urban planning and design.
Linkeroever was printed by die Keure.
