The Canal Zone is rapidly changing, with hundreds of projects big and small. One such small project got a boost by winning the 2018 Bruocsella Prize. The prize of €24,000, is awarded by Promethea, 24 businesses that award the prize annually to projects that contribute to urban renewal in Brussels. The winning project is La Licorne (the unicorn) a joint project of COOP and l’Atelier Marin. The project consists of building a seaworthy replica of Le Grand Vaisseau de Versailles, a 17th century French warship, and then sailing it. Nicolas Joshko president of l'Atelier Marin and Jose Menendez, director of COOP tell us the aims of the project.
