Date: 29 October 2014

Introduction: Streetscape Territories: Common Streetscapes, The Low Countries & New York (6-7-8 november)

Flanders House New York, the Consulate General of the Netherlands, KU Leuven (Streetscape Territories Research Project) and TU Delft have the honor to present: A joint project of seminars, workshops, round tables, publications and events about streetscapes and waterscapes. This international collaborative project reinforces and expands the existing professional, academic and cultural networks between the two regions. During the summer and fall 2014, a combination of joint activities and events seeks to highlight a historical influence on the identity and growth of the region of New York and will explore cultural similarities, parallels or differences between the two regions in order to propose future scenarios for research and design in the field of art and architecture, urban design and planning. This multiple exchange project is based on one main theme: Common Streetscapes. The project embraces and celebrates a rich variety of Common Streetscapes between the two regions, linking design experiences in different Flemish and Dutch cities (Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Brugge, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Den Haag...) and the New York region.
