The square is the heart of the urban renewal area, and the physical interventions are combined with a social program to improve the quality of life and security. The play areas are designed as ‘satellites’, for which Carve and the Centre for Visual Arts in Dordrecht invited ten renowned international offices to propose a design.
The offices were J. Mayer H. (Berlin), Ecosistema Urbano (Madrid), Office for Subversive Architecture (London-Berlin), Raumlabor (Berlin), Fantastic Norway (Oslo), Mésarchitecture (Paris), Onix (Groningen) and Chapuisat Brothers (Founex). The designs of J. Mayer H., Ecosistema Urbano and OSA were chosen for realisation.
