Since 2017, 51N4E is part of the incubation of new use in the monofunctional Brussels’ North District. Together with others, they housed for two years in the emblematic WTCI&II towers and currently in the nearby CCN building. In parallel, they were chosen as architect for the new project of the ZIN project, an adaptive reuse project turning the monofunctional WTC towers into a mixed-use development. In this lecture, the results of this process were presented through the different roles they took and projects that were produced during this period.
51N4E were nominated several times for the Mies van der Rohe Awards, among others for revitalizing the square in Tirana, Albania. They focus on large urban projects (for example in Bordeaux, Brussels, Istanbul), the reconstruction of old factory halls into cultural spaces and smaller projects including private housing.
