Shaped with an engaging contemporary sentiment the radiant Inspiration Center in Dutch town of Grevelingen is work of Paul de Ruiter Architects.
From the Architecture:
The structure will be positioned at the midpoint of brouwer's dam which physically separates the two bodies.
A central tower is elevated above two low-profile volumes, creating a place for wind to circulate and introduce daylight into the heart of the building. Lifted above the earth or cut into the land, the structure serves as a benchmark for the uneven and changing ground levels resulting from tidal processes. Taking a visual aesthetic from the surrounding context, the facades are surfaced with reeds and green roofs.
