MVRDV - Book Mountain nominated for Dutch Wood Award

Book Mountain nominated for Dutch Wood Award

The wood and glass 'hood' of the Book Mountain is structurally separate from the 'mountain' underneath, using only wood to support itself. Integrated within the hood are various systems for reducing the buildings energy use. The hood involved a collaboration with De Groot Vroomshoop Houtbouw, Vroomshoop, the Netherlands and Arcadis Engeering, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
