Presentation of plans for Belvédère/Sphinxkwartier

14 June 2016
Despite receiving increasing attention, exactly where in Maastricht is the Sphinxkwartier and what is the story behind this new district? As Sphinx hype reaches fever pitch, Toos Hofstede of Viastory presents the story of the Sphinxkwartier. However, more is needed than just the story; the area should be experienced first-hand, and preferably before and during the many planned changes.

Successful district developments, such as Strijp-S and the Westergasterrein, show that putting an area on the map relies on active programming during its transformation. In its action plan, Bureau Europa, platform for architecture and design, details how such a strategy can work for the Sphinxkwartier. On behalf of Bureau Europa Loes van Oort informs on the plan’s recommendations.

To get a sense of one of the recommendations from Bureau Europa’s report, during the meeting you can meet with Tom Goossen, the Sphinxkwartier’s new programmer.
