Brussels & Chocoladefabriek Tongeren

Brussels is a car-city-paradise. Except for hot spots for tourism, most of the public space is being held strictly for the users of cars. The balance in the division of squares and roads is one with the concrete-grey look of the golden ages of cars somwewhere between the 50’s and 60’s.

By installing popular and colourful in toys in the streets we occupy a small piece of this public space and change its colour. We do this by combining the colours from elements in the street, such as traffic signs, and bring them together into a new, more acceptable element. This way we not only provide a recreational area for the children of the neighbourhood but also want to criticize the threatened safety of ourselves and our health by the Brussels car pollution.
