The project De Waalse Krook is one of the most important innovative projects in the heart of Ghent. The site in-between the Walpoortstraat, the Ketelvaart, the Nederschelde, the Lammerstraat and the beginning of the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat will be completely modernized and redeveloped and will be given a new meaning. Two buildings are essential in the project: the former Wintercircus (Circus Mahy) and the new center of knowledge and culture including the new Library of the Future and the New Media Centre.
