Oudenaarde Markt

As the oldest urban core, the Markt of Oudenaarde is a market square situated in the heart of the Belgian city. Despite its intrinsic historic and social value, it has suffered from the impact of the urban and social transformation. Most recently, the central city square has served as one large traffic node around a parking lot. The original function - a market and meeting point for the citizens of the town – was thus completely lost. The nature of the intervention arises from the necessity of restoring the lost urban space, bringing it back to the city and its citizens.
