This year's theme is: The future of Urban Nature

Urban and Nature are often depicted as a dichotomy as if they are two opposites, one excluding the other.
A mid-sized city such as Kortrijk has a high percentage of open spaces in its city center.
We ask to the Designers in Residence 2021 to deepen our understanding of the relation Urban Nature in the City of Kortrijk.
Can this be interpreted as a co-existence? Can it be made operational to tackle the major challenges cities are facing? What interventions and projects can result out of this interpretation? Or is Nature in the end a man-made construct that needs to be rethought?
