Documentation of UN Studio building in Almere

2007

Amateur footage of an office building in Almere, The Netherlands, by architecture firm UN Studio. “The façade facing the street is silver in color, so the building is not conspicuous in an environment of grey brickwork buildings. The façade is interrupted at two places on the street side, which grant a peek to the brightly coloured façades on the inner court. These are covered with a foil, initially developed for covering perfume bottles but was never implemented for that purpose. Producer 3M only wanted to produce the foil if there was a guaranteed large order.”
