The FLORALIES of Ghent want to help the general public discover new trends and give them creative ideas, in the margin of a major event in the city centre focusing on the floral and green experience of the future, in order to gradually introduce flowers and plants into their homes, their streets and their city.
FLORALIES of Ghent will be situated in four sites :
The Citadel Park is the day's largest park and green lung Gent today. The Floraliënhal also an historic site of the FLOWER SHOW, and still remembered as severely by many. The presence of iconic public buildings of the Ghent cultural life creates rich opportunities for collaboration.
The Leopoldskazerne is possibly a lesser known or obvious location, but whom the building complex and its large inside area visiting is surprised. Its optimal location in connection with the Citadel Park and St. Peter's Square makes it a complementary site with a character to explore strong.
The area surrounding the Saint Peter's Square has a long and eventful history behind it and is an important link in the history of the city of Ghent. Today converge here religious heritage, academia, event-based and student lives. The trail of FLOWER SHOW 2016 between Citadel Park and St. Peter's Square also provides a fascinating perspectieve with the Book as an important landmark in the city skyline.
The historic Bijlokesite today is home to a dozen organizations in culture, education and positions itself accordingly as a green haven of culture near the center of Ghent.
Urban transformation and permanence generate this exceptional site with a mix of architectural styles with historical and contemporary architecture seamlessly flow into one another.
