The intriguing rooftop landscape of De Singel in Antwerp is used as a starting point for a series of 'Thought-Images' about architecture and the use of public space. The public route that Léon Stynen and Paul De Meyer designed half a century ago form the inspiration source for these images, though they visualize spatial and architectural situations that travel beyond this location. The thought-images are used as a tool to question the relation between public and private body and are an exercise to imagine spaces that facilitate or suggest a diverse, inclusive and open use of public space.

'Tafelzetting' is an exhibition series for young architects, active within the field of Flanders and Brussels, invited to reinterpret a series of benches and props, designed by Laura Muyldermans, on the front square of De Singel in Antwerp.
