J. Mayer H. architekten, Hasselt, 2004

In collaboration with A20 Architecten and Lens ass architecten

On the 23rd of may, the realisation of the first phase of the master plan by WEST 8 about the urban development around the train station of Hasselt took officially place.
A multifunctionele office building (23.000m2, about 90.000 m3) will arise where an eyecatching high building project is signet in the master plan.
From this icon, a salient design took form with two amorphous volumes: a tower of nine and a base of six levels in steel contractloon and glass, representant a tree, altough this marvellous piece of architecture is open to many interpretators. Start and end of the construction: 2007-2011
