Allee du Kaai Havenlaan 53, 1000 Brussel
  • About

    Abandoned buildings in the city: a missed opportunity?  Toestand feels these building are underused, and wants to do something about it. By transforming abandoned spaces into temporary socio-cultural centres, a.k.a ‘Spontaneous Action Zones’, we aim to open up these – otherwise lost – spaces for everyone, for small initiatives with unique plans, regardless of their capital.

    Allee du Kaai is an example of a Spontaneous Action Zone, located at the Materialenkaai/Havenlaan. This project of Toestand and Leefmilieu Brussel used to be a bunch of empty hangars. Now it’s a  serigraphy workplace for some, a skate park for others but also a bike workshop, a people’s kitchen… Allee du Kaai is basically a living, evolving site where social, artistic and sports activities can arise and develop. At the end of 2018, Allee du Kaai will make way for a new public park. But until then, we’ll keep on building a place where everyone is welcome to meet each other and to grow at your personal pace.
