watchhouse brinta

Watchhouse Brinta is the result of a collaboration between Jurgen Bey and Rianne Makkink. It is constructed of straw and crates that form the structure of the house. The simple materials, exterior patterning and task-specific space design reminds me of early vernacular architecture, such as the flurk├╝chenhaus.

It is designed around the theme "Time is short and definite, derived from the sundial in the park." Watchhouse is one out of thirteen projects set up for the Vijverberg VI exhibition in Tytsjerk, on exhibit August 3 until October 26, 2008.
