KAAN in design competition for Bruges’ Beurssite

KAAN Architecten is among the five teams running for the competition that aims to provide a modern accommodation for congresses and conventions as well as exhibitions and events in the city of Bruges (Belgium).

Last year the city committee decided to close the actual premises and to build a renewed and contemporary building in the same location, Bruges’ Beursplein. After an intense selection phase, five teams have been chosen to run with the “design & build” formula that sees each team composed by an architect, a developer and a contractor.

KAAN Architecten will closely work with PSR Brownfield Developers NV and Jan De Nul NV in the Forum Brugae team.

Other participants are: Besix Red NV (Atelier Kempe Thill + Architecten Groep III, Besix Red NV, NV Besix S.A.); Samenwerkingsverband  BRUGGRES (OMA + U-define, BCS Investissement NV, Willemen General Contractor NV); Beursgenootschap Souto de Moura – META – CFE (Souto de Moura + META architectuurbureau, D&E NV + CFE NV, CFE Bouw Vlaanderen NV) and BC&EC (BIG + Salens, CIT Blaton NV + Extensa Group NV, Van Laere NV).

Results will be released in July 2017.
