The conference will be held exclusively on campus in the Ghent Campus of the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture. Altering Practices for Urban Inclusion Research Group will be hosting the conference with the valuable support of KU Leuven Ghent Technology Campus, Faculty of Engineering Technology. The Faculty of Architecture represents 150 years of design tradition from the Sint-Lucas programs. Brussels and Ghent are our biotope and living lab, internationalization is in our culture.
The conference venue is located at the Technology Campus just outside Ghent’s former city walls. The campus is shaped around new buildings as well as industrial facilities converted into passive and high-performance class/practice rooms and meeting rooms with an inclusive public courtyard.
