Glass farm for Dutch town
January 24, 2013 Leave a comment
Architects MVRDV noticed that the area put aside by the town planners resembled the layout of a traditional local farm. They used this idea to create a 1.6 times bigger model of a farm, made from glass and printed with images of a variety of different buildings from local farms, taken by artist Frank van der Salm.
The structure isn’t just for show, it also houses several retail and business premises on the 1600sqm of Schijndel’s large market square.
