Gerwin de Vries from Flux gave a lecture at the Greenweek in the Knoopkazerne. The topic of the lecture was the city as an ecosystem, illustrated with projects of Flux. Other lectures were about Space and Matter, Hof van Cartesius, Blue City and Kracht van Overvecht. Organized by AORTA
Flux and Charlotte Ernst presented the first results of their study on the Graadt van Roggenweg in Utrecht. The study will focus on neighboring companies, the relation between private and public space and the possibilities to improve the quality of public space during the multiple phases in the development of the station area.
The first phase of the ‘Hof van Cartesius’ project, a joint concept and initiative of Charlotte Ernst and Flux is in progress. All sorts of parties, led by Bianca and Charlotte Ernst, are working very hard to make the circular development of green workplaces possible, such as the Overvecht Vastgoed and Rhaw for architecture.

The Werkspoorpad is in progress and officially opened by alderman Paulus Jansen! The Werkspoorpad is an initiative and design by Flux landscape architecture and forms a 2,5km walk through the Werkspoorkwartier. The path connects a number of important places, such as station Zuilen, the Werkspoorkathedraal and the Hof of Cartesius. Parking is organized in a different way, which will increase the quality of stay for pedestrians and cyclists. The path is characterized by solid concrete bands with text and distance markings and can be expanded in the future. Commissioned by municipality of Utrecht and in collaboration with Charlotte Ernst.
