New summer at See U

The transformation of the former Fritz Toussaint barracks into an open, mixed-use, multifunctional district has entered the concrete phase. The first project to convert the emblematic buildings has been launched by the ULB and VUB universities. Others will start this autumn, including the conversion of the former Manège and the redevelopment of public spaces by the Société d'Aménagement Urbain (SAU), which is coordinating This involves the gradual reconfiguration of See U. The departure of temporary occupants, the See Users, has begun as planned. But the SAU has asked See U to organize a final season of events, compatible with the new constraints inherent in the works, until the end of summer 2022.


☀️ Summer in the neighborhood

Once again this summer, we promise you a neighborhood-oriented program. On the program: a guinguette open from Wednesday to Sunday; the Meet U program for the neighborhood (Quartier en Feest, Tous Fritz, etc.); sports tournaments (pétanque, beach volleyball, darts, ping pong); family activities (children's workshops, play zone, live arts show) and the return of open-air cinema!


🛠 Saw U "Velodroom disassembly"🚲

The dismantling of the Velodroom has begun! The challenge is to perpetuate the spirit of See U beyond the temporary occupation: by creating sustainable businesses and projects; by initiating encounters and collaborations that will extend beyond the transitory occupation. The Velodroom, too, will spin off after its deconstruction, and its materials will be reappropriated by its users.
➡️ Part of the Velodroom will be transformed into an agora to welcome the public during open-air cinema, concerts and performances;
➡️ The rest of the wood will then be transformed into small-scale site amenities throughout the summer;
In this way, the central area of the site will open up to new activities, oriented towards families and sport, while the Velodroom will leave the site, in a variety of forms.


📒Restitution day 🥳

The See U and SAU teams will be looking back on this extraordinary temporary occupation during a one-day event. The day will be organized around three events: a round table to share and evaluate the See U experience; the presentation of a photo book; and a festive get-together organized by the See Users.
