HOUSING BLOCK BLUE MOON (SPACE GROUP)
SPACE GROUP ARCHITECTS, 2000-2001, Achter de Barakken, Groningen
Held in 2001, the ‘Blue Moon’ festival grew out of an idea by Toyo Ito to erect housing at five ‘hidden’ locations in the city core. The project by the Oslo-based Space Group consists of a house, a child day care centre and a swimming pool; the facade cladding includes stretched tent canvas. The other realized projects were by Toyo Ito, Foreign Office Architects and Tony Fretton. The project of the fifth architect Xaveer De Geyter was temporary.
