BUUR together with Value Partners was appointed in 2015 by the city of Tienen for the development of a vision on urban core strengthening. The vision aims to help Tienen develop a future-oriented spatial policy while setting up projects and actions together with the citizens of Tienen and increasing local pride in the city.
BUUR drew up a number of vision plans for Tienen that express a long-term ambition for the themes of housing, public space, neighborhood life and regional center role. In addition we developed a detailed action plan for the short, medium and long term on which we indicated planned and new projects, interventions and desired relationships. This action plan was accompanied by an extensive document describing the interventions and suggestions for the (re)organization of the city’s spatial policy. Special attention was given to bottom up initiatives and temporary actions in urban space. For this, contact was made with various local (neighborhood) organizations and suggestions were made for a neighborhood-oriented policy. At the same time BUUR assisted the city in the preparation and quality control of current urban projects through design research.
