BY TIM VAN DEN BURG
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

In Breda is ruim 160 ha braakliggend terrein, waarvan het merendeel direct aan het centrum grenst. Dit is ongeveer even groot als Breda Centrum zelf. BRAAK! wil voorkomen dat deze terreinen veranderen in 'blindspots' en ziet volop mogelijkheden om de terreinen te benutten voor tijdelijke projecten. Projecten die verrassen, inspireren of tot nadenken stemmen.
