Five attitudes to a renewed Z33 infrastructure

Since 2002, Z33’s activities have been situated in the exceptional beguinage site infrastructure in the centre of Hasselt. The specific context of this heritage site creates a myriad of possibilities to present  exhibition projects, forcing Z33 to embrace and regularly renew an active dialogue with the various spaces. However, since the renovation of the beguinage site and the new construction of the exhibition building middle last century, the infrastructure has become antiquated.

In the past year, Z33 asked international designers to redesign the activities and organisation of Z33 in a (re)new(ed) infrastructure, entailing the gatehouse and the exhibition building Wing ’58 – both subject to renovation – as well as a newly constructed volume on the adjacent plot. Z33 will thus exit the beguinage houses, transferring its activities to the beguinage’s western side.

From thirty visions for Z33, five designers with widely ranging concepts were nominated to each present a preliminary design proposal. Z33 Builds! puts these five design proposals on display. The design team Francesca Torzo, Aldo Bakker, Piet Oudolf, ABT and Conzett Bronzini Gartmann was selected by Z33 and the Province of Limburg to continue the trajectory in dialogue. They will renew, renovate and construct the buildings in different stages to develop a new infrastructure for Z33 by 2015.

To visit on Z33 Celebrates! - 10 years Z33 on 17 November 10am-9pm + 18 November 10am-9pm
+ to visit until 02.12.2012 during opening hours.
