STAM is located on the Bijloke site, a green oasis close to the city centre, a haven of culture on the banks of the River Leie (Lys). For seven centuries the sick were cared for on this site, but then a quarter of a century ago the hospital vacated it, making way for a number of departments of the college of higher education (Hogeschool Gent). Numerous other educational and cultural organizations followed.
The re-landscaped and extended gardens will help link the various initiatives. Bordering on the inner ring-road there will be a museum garden with a pond.
The Bijloke is set to become a lively centre of culture where knowledge and civilization converge. Meet the occupants of the Bijloke on www.bijlokesite.be and let them present themselves to you in this film.
