Flanders begins ‘open call’ for architects

  • Comment

The Flemish Government Architect has launched its biannual ‘open call’ for architects to complete a number of public schemes

This year’s international competitions include a £108 million hospital regeneration in Turnhout, a new transport hub and a city park in Genk.

A 300-unit residential development in Wijnegemand a masterplan for an historic site in central Aalst are also included.

Between three and seven architects will be shortlisted for each project.

The programme – which has so far delivered around 300 buildings – was first launched in 1999 and its official language is Dutch.

UK architects who have previously won projects from the ‘open call’ include Maccreanor Lavington, Sergison Bates, Tony Fretton, Stephen Taylor, Ian Simpson, Witherford Watson Mann and DRDH.

Any public sector client in Flanders may use the system to procure its architects. Applicants must register online and may apply for one or more projects.

Recent plans to replace the state architect with a new committee has raised concerns Flanders’ progressive procurement system and the open call could be at risk (AJ 10.09.14).

The deadline for registration is 11pm local time on 3 May.
