    The School Campus houses more than 1,250 students and forms a beautiful ensemble of four education-related buildings surrounding a publicly accessible park with facilities for playing and sports. With an area of ​​18,500 m², the campus is in the top 5 of the largest projects within the Flemish public-private program Scholen van Morgen. The complex with a secondary school, elementary school, sports complex and boarding school replaces all the buildings of Peer free education in one go.

  • 3D Concrete Printing Fire Wall

    January 10th

     

    Bekkering Adams Architects together with Cement&BetonCentrum and TU Eindhoven developed a design where the possibilities of 3D Concrete Printing are explored. The prototype will be exhibited during the construction fair BouwBeurs 2017 (Feb 6-10, Jaarbeurs Utrecht).

    Read the article.

     

    Three prototypes were designed during the Tectonics Design Challenge 3DCP and developed by three selected architects: Bekkering Adams architects (The Firewall), Bierman Henket architecten (Economy of Nature) and Movares Studio (ESOffice).

    During BouwBeurs 2017, the results of a year further design and engineering will display the latest capabilities of 3D concrete printing, showing the architectural potential of this innovative technology.

    At least as interesting as the final concrete prototypes are the stories about the process of design and engineering. The printing technique brings the profession of designer and producer namely closer together.

     

    The participating architects of the Design Challenge and researchers from the 3DCP projects will share these stories with the public on Wednesday February 8, 8:00 am to 11:00 (preliminary planning) in the plenary theater in Hall 9.

  • Belgenmonument design proposal published in Ontwerpwedsrtrijd Belgenmonument Amersfoort FASadE

    January 9th

     

    Bekkering Adams design proposal for the Belgenmonument in Amersfoort has been published in the catalogue of Ontwerpwedsrtrijd Belgenmonument Amersfoort FASadE.

     

     

    Read the catalogue. (pp.74)

     

    The proposal reflects on the original meaning and purpose of the monument. Our aim was to get back vividly the story and the emotions that the monument intended to express. Implementing the three existing zones with interventions that strengthen and intensify their significance.

    The Pad der Droevenis depicts the terror of war with concrete poles, bowing slightly, reinforcing the feeling of a trench.

    The Geheime Tuin offers self reflection and scattering through an intimate path towards the heart of the garden, surroundend by water, lights and flower that reflect on the water surface and multiply in the minds.

    The Voorplein stands for cheer. Here, in the square of the monument annual events can take place like the memorial of First World War, refugees meetings or classical concerts.
