The rigorous implementation of industrial materials creates a composition of lines and planes with a variation in scale, rhythm and color. The building is enclosed with different corrugated metal cladding; with their varying amplitude these offer an array of shadows and reflections on the building’s expansive surfaces. Two perforations – one circular, the other rectangular – offer reflections of the vicinity and reveal an internal world.
The seasonal nature of the building’s use means that internal logistics are to be reckoned with. Drawing upon the hangar archetype, three full-height sliding doors allow the full width of the structure to be opened towards quay and canal. This offers added flexibility in staging events and solving the logistical puzzle throughout the seasons.
