During the last week of May, ORG together with Common Ground, the city of Antwerp and Flanders organized the ‘Ring Days’: 33 final projects around the Antwerp Ring, designed by 6 multidisciplinary teams were presented to the public. On three different locations in the city of Antwerp, an exhibition was organized, with models and presentation panels on display. A large team of designers and experts were present to explain the projects both in one to one conversations with the visitors, in workshops and in a live radio show. The more then 2000 visitors were also asked for their opinion, as public support will be one of the criteria to decide which of the projects will be built in the first phase, for which the Flemish government and the city and port of Antwerp have promised 1,25 billion euros.
