Pieterjan Ginckels approaches the city of Leuven as one big escape room of which he will design the entrance and the exit. On the European scale Leuven is hailed as an exemplarily city for its emphasis on knowledge production, cultural industry and facilities, and durability. At the same time the city of Leuven seems too well organized, were any kind of disruptive human trace is cleaned or hidden. With this pavilion Ginckels wants to reflect on city planning. What are the parameters of a liveable city, who decides these, and how are these parameters concretized?
