the glass farm

by andfuturedust

Forward thinking dutch firm MVRDV have just completed their modern take on the glass house with their ‘glass farm‘ in a town called Schijndel, in the Netherlands.


The building’s steel frame structure is clad entirely in glass panels, printed with pictures taken from local farmhouses, referencing the agricultural vernacular of the town. Artist Frank Van Der Salm was responsible for creating the collage, a collective image used to create the essence of “vernacular authenticity”.


The building is situated in the town’s main square and is home to restaurants, shops and a wellness centre..
