Play Landscape Be-MINE

0

The team of Carve and Omgeving (design) and Krinkels (contractor) won the international competition to design an adventurous play-scape and landmark on a ‘terril‘ in Beringen, Belgium, in January 2015. The adventure mountain is part of the tourist, recreative project Be-MINE, that aims to breathe new life into the monumental coal-mining site in Beringen, the largest industrial archeological site in Flanders.

The former mining city asked to add a new function to the 60-meter high rubble mountain and to redevelop the old industrial buildings into a cultural hotspot where its history can be experienced in a playful way. The design consists of three parts; that create a unity with the mountain and its past: a pole forest as a landmark, an adventurous prismatic play surface on the flank of the mountain and a coal square on the top of the ‘terril.’ The spine of the ensemble is straight stairs that provide access to all levels. At night, a light line along the stairs makes the topography of the terrain visible.
