Recycling park, Anderlecht
Competition entry for the design of a recycling park in Anderlecht.

The Brussels Canal area is a unique surrounding with a very distinct character.
It offers an exciting mix of urban and industrial features. Hangars with saw-tooth roofs and houses stand side by side.

The shape of the recycle square is a result of the angle made by the canal and the railway tracks.
The recycling square is conceived as a balcony along the canal.
The containers are behind the square.
The offices and dressing rooms are inside the truss, on the first floor.
The steel triangle is carried by a couple of concrete columns. A rubber tyre as capital.
