Landscapetable and Parckdesign featured on TV Brussels

Thursday May 8th marked the official opening of the new Thurn and Taxis park in central Brussels. A park of this scale has not been inaugurated in Brussels since the time of Leopold II. The minister of the environment, √Čvelyne Huytebroeck, gave an inaugural speech and toured the installations of Parckdesign 2014. A festive reception and farm-party followed which carried on until midnight, ending in celebratory fireworks, despite the rain. This was a key moment in the process of the project, when local initiatives were introduced to the larger public, with positive results.

I gave a short interview to TV Brussels, and inaugurate the Landscape Table with Mohammed, a local inhabitant from the Molenbeek neighborhood. Together we plucked the first orange from the table, hopefully the first of many harvests to come.
