POLO Architects laureate architectural competition Gallait site campus in Schaerbeek
Given the enormous lack of capacity in the Brussels-Capital Region, the Flemish Community Commission (VGC) builds a new multifunctional campus on the Gallait site in Schaerbeek for Dutch-speaking education. POLO Architects drew the winning design.
The project - which includes a secondary school, middle school, elementary school and youth centre - is conceived as a "village within the city" and has the ambition to become a campus tailored to the neighbourhood. It maximises opportunities for development for the children and teenagers frequenting its schools.
