By clearing the heart of the location for the city academies of Deinze, a ‘void’ is added to the urban fabric. A single layer gallery makes for a ‘frame’ around this courtyard and connects all the existing buildings. This newly defined space becomes the ultimate place to represent the academies and their activities. At the same times it creates a clear situation and a proper overview in the middle of the building block.
