Mediacite

Liege—a

major city and municipality of Belgium, and former industrial backbone of Wallonia –is the home of Mediacite; a mixed use development of retail, cinemas and sports facilities.

The most striking element of Mediacite is the 350m long mall; a free-flowing boulevard, weaving across the fabric of the refurbished old market centre, through a new two-storey building, and connecting with the new Belgian national television centre.

The mall itself is modelled on the internal street of the traditional galleria, or arcade, where the strong architectural identity helps to unify proportion between the various scale of units, and creates a distinct rhythm along its length. It is capped by a naturally lit roof; a complex network of steel ribs that kiss, and cross one another, expanding and contracting to sculpt the volume of the mall beneath.  

The building opened in 2009, and is the first BREEAM certified building in Belgium.
