Overlooking a newly built channel in The Netherlands, the pavilion stands out from the tranquil, pastoral surroundings as a rib cage-like structure with sharp angles. It combines corrugated steel , plywood and plastic that make up its shell, roof and siding, referencing traditional wooden-truss frames and gabled roofs of the old local residences.

Another bench is formed along the exterior of the pavilion. The architect coated the plywood trusses with black rubber to protect it from the elements. + Frank Havermans + Stichting Fabrikaat Via Dezeen Photos by René de Wit
