hans kollhoff, iba housing project

 

okay, last image taken from the de singel website.  promise.  but i recommend paging through their flickr feed.  there are some great images out there, such as this r&sie(n) project.

as for the above image, i couldn’t help post hans kollhoff’s housing proposal, a modest and introverted structure compared to the rest of the boisterous iba proposals and projects.
