Mechelen Boulevard wins 2018 public space prize
The prize has been awarded every year since 2008 by Infopunt Publieke Ruimte (the Public Space Information Point), run by the Voetgangersbeweging (Pedestrians’ Movement), an organisation that works to improve the quality of public space. With the prize, it aims to reward good commissioning and champion pleasant, safe, sustainable public areas built to a human scale. The jury praised Mechelen for setting an example for other cities with its comprehensive approach to public space.
PosadMaxwan worked on the project with the Antea Group in a consortium selected after a call for tenders by the Flemish government architect.
