BURA (formerly known as marco.broekman) is asked by the Municipality of Groningen to make a vision on spatial development possibilities for Plot P2 in Europapark, Groningen. Europapark, a former industrial area, is slowly being transformed into a mixed urban area of living, working, education, recreation and sport. The ambition is to create an attractive and liveable neighbourhood where high quality public space and flexibility of program play an important role. Plot P2 presents high development risks since it has been the former ground of Hunze electricity powerplant the foundations of which still lie here. Plot P2, which until now has been planned as an office location is now going to be developed as a mix of living and working and this presents opportunities for the entire area of Europapark. In collaboration with Stadkwadraat and Nimas, BURA (formerly known as marco.broekman) is going to prepare a comprehensive study, not only spatial and programmatic but also technical and financial.
