Michel Desvigne

Michel Desvigne Paysagiste is responsible for the landscape. In the interview, he explains how the industrial site Kanaal will be transformed into a green area. He clarifies how nature will be the element that both connects the different architectural developments and at the same time provides a balance. French spoken with English subtitles.

Atmosphere of unified diversity

The Kanaal Site is strongly marked by its colossal silo's and massive buildings. To create a peaceful work and living environment the industrial character is softened. In his well thought-out landscape plan Michel Desvigne integrates offices, workshops, residential and exhibition spaces and creates a unique atmosphere of unified diversity by installing courtyards and green plantations.

Desvigne makes sure the site seamlessly integrates with the surrounding, by visually anchoring the Albert Canal and Stokerijstraat.
