Play landscape be-MINE. Beringen, Belgium

The team of Carve and Omgeving (design) and Krinkels (building) won the international competition to design an adventurous play-scape and landmark on a ‘terril’ in Beringen, Belgium, in January 2015. The adventure mountain is part of the touristic-recreative project be-MINE, that aims to breathe new life into the monumental coal mining site in Beringen, the largest industrial-archeological site in Flanders. The former mining city asked to add new function to the 60 meter high rubble mountain, and to redevelop the old industrial buildings into a cultural hotspot where its history can be experienced in a playful way.
