Rademacher de Vries Architects | Euregio Ontspoord? / L’Eurégio Déraillée?
Rademacher de Vries is a design and research office that focuses on architecture, the city and the urban environment. Through building, teaching and exhibiting we seek to produce relevant spatial insights that are rooted in a self-conscious understanding of our discipline and culture. Our design methodology is characterized by a research driven approach that investigates projects through the perspective of different scales, cultural transformations and technological innovations. In close collaboration with our clients, we apply this design method to overcome disciplinary boundaries and actively engage in societal challenges.

Euregio Ontspoord? / L’Eurégio Déraillée?

The Euroregion derailed, is an exhibition that looks at cross-border urbanization and rail development in the Meuse valley between Liège and Maastricht.

 

In 2018 a three-country rail network was expected to be operational, between Aachen, Liège and Maastricht, but the Belgian-Dutch connection is still falling behind. Is this a sign of failing political cooperation or are it really just technical problems that can be solved? What does the rail connection actually have to offer for Liège, Maastricht and the border region between them?Are interests aligned, and is there consensus about what the transnational connection should promote? Can innovations in mobility and logistics lead to more compact cities? Or do they accelerate suburbanization in the Maas valley?

 

Through contributions from various architects, students, photographers, sociologists and civil servants these questions for the border region where examined and discussed during the opening conference.
