FUP awards its competition prizes

The jury of the competition organised by FUP (For Urban Passion) met a few days ago in Namur to nominate the winners of this year's ‘Grand Prix de l’Urbanisme’. The objective of the competition is to rally as wide a public as possible around subjects which may often be spoken about, but more rarely translated into concrete action points.

The theme of this year’s competition was ‘New Uses, New Mobilities’: what is being done in terms of changing the way we live, and what will the mobility of tomorrow look like. The jury – presided by Serge Peeters, Vice-President of the Chamber of Town Planners of Belgium – was looking for examples of what has already been done and is thus ‘concrete’.

Second nomination went to the Bon Air district at Leuze-en-Hainaut, which presents a new way of living in the countryside and a newly thought-out city of the future, and which considers the place of agriculture in all this. The jury found the project to be diverse, complex and innovative.

First nomination went to citydev.brussels’ ‘Greenbizz’ project close to Tour & Taxis in Brussels. The ambitious character of this project, along with its qualities, convinced the jury. The multi-functional character of the project and its desire to stimulate economic activity, its environmental-friendliness and its urban renovation character, were also appreciate.

The Grand Prix itself was awarded to the project to create a tram line in Liège, with its obvious implications for the future of the city and for mobility. The integration of the tram into the city, and a true reflection on the socio-economic future of different districts of the city, are in line with the objectives of the FUP itself.

A public prize was voted on by visitors (see photo), and this went to the ‘Confluence’ project in Namur, which will rehabilitate the Grognon district with new functions and in particular an events venue.
