Observatorium, the Dutch artists' collective - whose member Andre Dekker is scientific director of “The City and the Water”, workshop organised by DESTeC (University of Pisa) in Seravezza, Versilia - has been working for decades on transforming places with close ties to water.
MVRDV has transformed number 133 Wai Yip Street, Hong Kong into a completely transparent office building. The architects stripped the building down to its primary structure and left it in view, then used glass to make all the furniture and even equipment such as computers and speakers.
From MVRDV’s Crystal House in Amsterdam to Kaan Architecten’s Supreme Court of The Hague, residential projects and innovative research: here is an overview of some of the most recent architectural projects built in the Netherlands recently discussed in Floornature.
