Untitled_Space_002, Sassenheim (NL), November 2000

Untitled_Space_02 concerned a gas station that should function as a spatial interface between the urban motorway and the surrounding rural landscape. The design took the project back to the typological essence of roof and wall: a series of T-shaped glass pavilions that determine, both individually and collectively, an apparently almost infinite number of places and spaces in the landscape without enclosing them.


Untitled_Space_02 was nominated for the Prix de Rome for urbanism and landscape in 2000. As such the project was exhibited on different locations (a.o. at Coming Soon, van Nelle, Rotterdam (NL) 2001) and published in Prix de Rome 2001 (Rotterdam: Uitgeverij 010 Publishers, ISBN 90-6450-417-2) and several architectural magazines.
