Best futura project

The award for best futura project (yet to be realised) went to Paradis Express, by Association Bureau A2M, BAG, Jaspers & Eyers Architects and Fedimmo.

The goal for this project is to become an urban connection between the Liège-Guillemins station and the Meuse river. There is room for residences, offices and retail. Green waves and tree growing reflect the hills and valleys of the city. The project connects to the public space and fits in well with the city texture. One has also done everything to follow passive standards and tries to act on Near-ZeroEnergyBuilding (NZEB)

Building Partners: Bureau Lemaire, TPF Engineering, D2S, Heinz Winters Atelier, Associatie Duchêne - Galère – Interbuild
