About Spatial Capacity Building

Spatial Capacity Building is a research cluster at the Faculty of Architecture & Arts at Hasselt University. Spatial Capacity Building conducts research into how we can support collectives of citizens, local organizations and local and supra-local governments in jointly reflecting on spatial transformation processes that take place in their everyday environment in order to then start engaging with these processes. We do this mainly through action research projects, commissioned by local, regional and European governments. This website, De Andere Markt,  presents some of our projects, the networks that carry the projects and the tools that are used to enable reflection and action within these networks.
