In anticipation of the flooding of the Emscher River, the group Observatorium, built a 125 meter long structure, which functions as a bridge and at the same time as a village. “Waiting for the River” anticipates the renaturalization of the river in the next ten years. The spaces, which include a hostel, bathroom and outdoor dining areas, are available for 24-hour stays.
An abandoned military bunker in Holland has been transformed into a striking landmark by RAAAF | Atelier de Lyon. Used from 1815 until 1940, the area in which the structure is located is a strategic military zone to protect the cities of Muiden, Utrecht, Vreeswijk and Gorinchem. Located near the shore, this seemingly indestructible bunker has been sliced open, revealing its interior.
