Abstract: The inhabited forests of Antwerp.
A history and retroactive definition of forest urbanism
Forest, although repressed in the current urbanism regime, has played a crucial role in the structuring of urbanization in the north-east of the Antwerp agglomeration. The consistent coherence between and intertwinement of forestry and urbanism over several development phases in time seduce us to a retroactive definition of forest urbanism. Three aspects mark the bonds: the forest and urban structure reinvent one another in dynamic cycles; the forest allows for a multiplicity of urban uses in an alternative, natural setting; forests play a fundamental societal role, they represent our most fundamental, natural existence on earth. In Schotenhof, the central case-study in this paper, these base characteristics shape over the course of time in an iteration a unique urbanization process.
