We are beginning an urban and public space mission in Sucy-en-Brie, with Le Studio Sanna Baldé, Les Eclaireurs and INGETEC.
By supporting the restructuring of the Cité Verte Fosse Rouge, the aim is to amplify the rich heritage and landscape, to enhance what is already there, to intensify the uses, to affirm the identity of “Living in the park"

After Parkfarm in 2016, TAKTYK is presenting this year its contribution to the prospective study Luxembourg in Transition within the grouping led by AREP (Flux).
Landscape as capital ?
- How to orchestrate the necessary transformation and adaptation of the forest to climate changes
- Let's imagine a green and productive belt around Luxembourg city.
FLUX is a spatial vision for a zero-carbon and resilient futur of the Luxembourg functional region
GRAND GENEVE IN TRANSITION
In collaboration with AREP, Mobil homme, the Institute of Environmental Transition of La Sorbonne, Arx-IT and Kaleido'scop, TAKTYK explores the possibilities of a decarbonised future for the PACA of the Arve Valley.
- How to accompany the ecological and energy transition in this territory?
- How to reach the objective of a neutral carbon balance in 2050?
- What role can the landscape play in meeting these societal challenges and in creating a common narrative?
is an 18-month prospective study conducted within the framework of
Greater Geneva in Transition. Our reflection will accompany the work of 3
teams on 3 other PACAs with the aim of building a cross-border
territorial vision for Greater Geneva: Gûller and Gûller, Urba plan and
Talks : Resilience — landscapes as laboratories of the future
Brussels able to create, enable & promote parks as laboratories ?
What and how can we learn from others ?
This discussion will be curated
by the Chair in Landscape of the Faculty of Architecture, 'La Cambre
Horta'. Responding to the invitation of Ursula Wieser
Curator Landscapes, Gardens, Urban ecosystems.

A sponge (park) on a (water)table
In a context of urban densification, the value of existing urban park is
not yet to be contested. In Brussels nevertheless most of them being
under heritage jurisdiction, they are considered as frozen images of
nature. The attentive examination of existing
ground conditions leads to responsive design strategies to adapt those
needed spaces to current socio ecological challenges
Through to the first Brussels Urban Landscape Biennal we highlighted in
the whole Brussels region the potential of heritage park located in rich
sandy ground to become sponge parks, a new public infrastructure vital
at the scale of a several watersheds. This
hypothesis is tested through the design of on action plan for water and
biodiversity improvement in Josaphat park, an iconic Brussels park.
What is at stake? We deal here with a real paradox. The park was
conceived as a piece of a valley, but its current water
management ignore it. Above the ground, the architect Galopin designed
the park as a succession of scenes of nature along several lakes with
very poor living quality. Under the ground a vast pipe and pumping
systems bring the water to the top of the park featuring
a cascade. Working closely with hydrologist and biodiversity experts
the design research attests the potential of the sandy ground to
infiltrate and retain water above the clay. We discover that the wooden
hills of the park can become a vast water reservoir
able to supply constant flow of water into the pond system. In short,
our proposition acknowledges the ecology of the valley as an alternative
to the obsolete technological design of the park. The picturesque is
understood not as a scenographic construction
but as a holistic attempt to design places for living human-nonhuman
happy to share some outcomes of our research entitled
ground as design material" that we pursued since the birth of Taktyk .
In the latest OASE , we are presenting our latest sponge park adaptation
strategy for Josaphat park in Brussels.
issue of OASE makes a critical analysis of how soil connects to urban
planning and urban design, and how it can adjust those practices in
exploring new agendas.
those agendas will come true as we are entering now operational phase

WHEN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE had a real VOICE in Brussels...
pleased to share with you LA FAILLE by Alive Architecture and Taktyk. A
critical project working in the legacy of pioneer landscape architect
Van der Swaelmen. Almost a century ago Kapelleveld garden city was
designed and built on a fertile plateau, in its center Van der Swaelmen
aimed for a public park connected to Brussels park valley system. This
never happened in fact the core of the site became an expat tennis club
discouraging the inhabitants to come ! LA FAILLE through working with
the landscape, from the site to the valley, the material resources,
working with as found materials and before all working with the actors
aims to reclaim its privatized core and set up a new narrative for the
More images to come...
