The surroundings of the Sportpaleis in Antwerp are a multifunctional area within a highly dynamic set of mobility infrastructures. In addition to the large-scale Sportpaleis there are small-scale economic functions that may or may not have a connection with the Albert Canal. All sorts of actors look forward eagerly to this place that has a central location in the much planned infrastructure works in Antwerp. The research will have to show which functions can contribute to a balanced mix of activities and a higher spatial quality. Traject supports Maat Ontwerpers as mobility advisers in the study process.
