the house as trail – a structure built upon the informal, pedestrian-created paths of a site- a project by Amsterdam architect Anne Holtrop, as part of the part of the exhibition Unknown Territories 2009 by Museum De Paviljoens in Almere. interesting to me here is the interaction between site and form. in a simple move, this building merely adds structure to the pre-existing circulation paths and makes the temporary permanent, and in this moment, the human experience of passing through landscape is completely changed. the unfinished beechwood is a particularly stiking backdrop for the wild grasses, orchids, weeds, and clovers. photos by Bas Princen; discovered on Jessica’s journal.
